garden's in

Post  dstubbs on 6/6/2011, 7:27 pm

Hi folks,

I just got things set up for SFG year #2. I left out a few of the things that didn't work out so well for me last year, but generally it's a similar mix of veggies and herbs. Two new things this year: I added marigolds to a couple of my boxes (I wanted a bit of colour to help attract bees and butterflies and generally pretty it up, plus I've heard they can be good for the soil -- something about nematodes). Second, I'm using the compost from my worm composter for the first time.


I also set up a SFG project at a local daycare -- I have another thread about that.

Wish me luck!

Luck wished! I don't know if you remember me but we had similar trials last June with poor growing. I gave up after hail but you kept on going and had a beautiful garden by the end of the season.

Things look much more promising in my garden this June and I planted earlier too.

Have you built a fence around your roof yet? Very Happy

No fence yet -- it's on mt to do list (which never ends with an old house like mine). Smile

I just went back and pulled your original post from last year. I am sooooo impressed. The little view of the river makes it so nice. I can't wait to see pictures of your garden all filled out this summer. And I think your idea of some flowers to dress it up is great. Is the rooftop finished enough for you to sit out there and enjoy the garden and view?

Kay

Hi Kay,

Thanks for the nice compliments. A few things are starting to sprout up -- we'll see how we make out this year. My house is one storey higher in the front than in the back -- I can walk out through a door and I have a sink on that level, so it's pretty easy. It is nicer up there. Eventually we'd like to put out a deck with a glass railing around it. We could sit out there as is, but with no railing it's dangerous for our toddler, so we use it mostly for gardening.

The water is the Saint John harbour and Bay of Fundy beyond. It's very nice. It would be really spectacular if it was one story higher, as you can really only see the water from a standing position.
