Last year didn't get much blogging done. My excuse is I spent the Summer right up to the first frost relaying the patio's pavers. I am now attaching the patio to the paths. I'll add a pic when the snow is gone.
This year I am making some changes to the garden layout. The big plot with the diagonal paths is being enlarged by adding another foot in width by moving the path closer to the deck. Last year's smallest plot is being attached to the big plot by removing the path between them. These changes add about fourty more square feet to the garden. This additional space will be used to add another diagonal trellis in the large plot. I will try to grow eggplant and peppers on this new trellis.
This year the first sign of life was almost two weeks earlier. February 22nd saw the first rhubarb breaking the soil, this has been a mild winter, the next week+ looks tough tho.
