Thank you Nicky. I meant thinning in the tray (Not outdoors), and when to transplant to larger pot until temps are ready outdoors-a month from now (at least).
I finished the raised bed yesterday, topped With soil and straw. It got rained in well today. Next on the agenda, pest fencing and waiting for spring temps for seedlings.
Nicky, thank you for the wonderful feedback. I actually I’m dreaming pretty big I originally thought that the future raised beds would make a U-shaped out of the 2 x 8 that I am starting with. However, now I’m hoping to end up with something like this adding on as I learn and develop over the years to come.
I love the idea of having seating of some sort in the garden area to worship, observe or simply admire. I also think having a permanent fence will add delineation for aesthetics as well as pest protection.
Future plans to add camellias and azalea under the pines on the fenced in yard slope. Figs or possibly pear Guilds on the slope West of the raised beds.
Also, 6 ft circular raised herb/flower bed with art sculpture in the middle Of the fenced yard (in front of kitchen window).
Ive already considered adding gutters to this side of the house to protect the foundation so that will probably happen in the years ahead.
Thank you and Dave for your mentorship and walking me through the permaculture way. I’ve always been overwhelmed with so many options and honestly too many chores to keep the land in shape yet natural. Now, I’m seeing a plan, step by step, one day/season at a time.
Oh, a small personal win - I planted my gardenia last weekend that I grew to 1 foot from a cutting my friend gave my for my birthday last February. 🌱😍
