A Garden with a Plan

I did it, I made a plan, and a plan I’m going to stick to!

Now since this is just a plan and hasn’t been put into action yet I don’t have many pictures for you. BUT we can use our imagination, i’ll try to explain myself well ❤ I much prefer pictures to words but we’ll work with what we’ve got.

So this is the plot of land we’re using for the garden, it’s behind the garage/shop building. In the far right hand corner is where the 2 adult pear trees and 4 adult apple trees are. On the far left there is a young pear tree 2 unknown bushes and a large blueberry bush. I’m thinking the other two are some sort of berry as well, maybe even a different type of blueberry but we wont know for certain until they start producing fruit. There is also a grape vine but we’ll get to that in a moment.

This is the garden after it had been tilled for the first time in 3+ years we’re going to fertilize it this weekend if the weather cooperates.  We are still doing a lot of reclaiming of the back yard there was a large brush pile we had to burn and there’s still a lot of rotting wood and brush that needs to be burned and it’ll make the place look 1000 times better!

Now, since it’s just James and I this garden is much larger than we need so we wont be using all of it. My hope is to do semi-raised beds for all of the different crops which will make weeding and keepings things organized much easier for me. It also is more attractive in my opinion.


This is more along the lines of what I was thinking, we are planning to fence in the garden to keep critters out I don’t trust my cat to  leave anything alone and there are wild animals as well.This is a little more elaborate than i’d do like we wont have any trees in the garden or anything but you get the idea with the separate beds.

This is more accurate with what we want to do but we wont need to do fully raised beds we’ll just be doing some edging.

So now for what we’re putting in the garden, most of these I have already started as seedlings out on the kitchen deck. If the scanner was up and running i could just show you the plots i have drawn out but there isn’t enough coffee yet to fight with electronics haha. So a list it is.

Asparagus Bed
Yellow pear tomatoes
Roma tomatoes
Sweet Peppers
Green onions
Blue Potatoes
Red Onions
Salad Greens
Green Beans

So that’s the garden plan and doesn’t include any of the fruit trees and stuff. We also have some grapes growing but right now they’re a little too close to the apple trees and we’d like to train it onto a nice trellis. This is what it looks like now

I’m not sure what kind of grapes these are but i’d like to get some red seedless grapes once we have a trellis.



So, that’s it for the garden right now that’s pretty much the plan in a nutshell. So let’s switch gears and talk about knitting for a bit.

I have the shop back up and running, but haven’t listed any new stuff yet but i’ve been working on a lot of new scarves and have a few new plans.  I also have a few cabled travel mug sleeves that I need to photograph and list but since picknic is no longer active i’m not sure what i’m going to use for a photo editing site. I have a program on the mac I might try. Anyone with suggestions i’m glad to hear them!
Before I closed the shop down because of the move I did get a chance to list more mug cozy’s and bracelets so take a peek if you are so inclined. I’m also completely caught up on custom orders so i’m prepared to take custom orders as well.

  3. Very ambitious of you! Good luck and have fun!! I dream of gardens like that, but we may need to wait till our kids are a little older and we have time to do such things!! 🙂
