Photo: April 2016 This side yard has long been forgotten. Years of gardening had been abandoned. We clear, restore, love, prune, reshape, transplant all found and saved plants, so it may bloom and nourish the home once again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Side Garden update may 2016

Photo: May 2016 We have cleared ground covers, crab grass, extensive periwinkle spread. We rescued the lost and found rhubarb, added in kale, kohlrabi, onions, carrots, tomatoes, and swiss chard. Renegade lungwort and many raspberry & blackberry mini bushes have been moved to live happily along the front yard fence and a border of rescued bricks with moss from the back garden has created a border for the fledgling vegetable garden. After digging up rotten roots in the brambles of the back garden (photos coming up in blog post), we found an old bird bath that accents the front of the vegetable bed and attracts the local bluejays, cardinals, and Baltimore orioles, easily viewed from the kitchen window.

RCA Veggie Mayhem finished beds

The Raised Beds have been reclaimed. We introduced naturalized rock, raised the soil levels, moved excess perennials from other parts of the garden to the back beds to fill in with layers of colour and texture. We even found a baby cedar tree and moved it into the back of the garden! Saved, rescued, reshaped, reclaimed. Loved and useful once again!
