Thanks to all for the welcome. Today is Tuesday, March 5th, and Nashville, Tenn., has been experiencing cold, intermittant rain and snow. Had a brief warm break a few weeks ago and got started on the beds, but Thurs-Sat. promise to be 45-55 degree weather and dry, so hope to get out and set up 3-4 more raised beds. Two-thirds of the backyard is flowers and relaxing area, a third for fruit and vegetables. Planning to grow more vegetables this year, so turning grass space into raised beds. Have a bank of blackberries along the north side of the back yard, and three heavily producing fig trees, with raspberries in between two of the fig trees. Three compost pits form the eastern edge of the vegetable garden, along with an old potting shed that needs to be replaced. Planning to put in couple of connected ponds on the other side of the back yard this year, if I find the time. That side of the yard has a miniature magnolia tree, lots of Hosta varieties, ferns, flowers that reseed themselves, and rooted greenery that bursts forth as soon as spring arrives. Lots to do, but I'm bless, and I love being in the garden. Always feel closer to my God there.
