Each of the main garden beds are 6X4 ft. The one along the house (corn and/or asparagus) is 8X1ft. It is the warmest spot in the garden. There is a climbing rose just to the right of this picture. I am keeping that there. It is so beautiful! But I will have to build a trellis for it to keep it off the house so it doesn't cause damage to the paint and such.
To the left of this picture, there is a huge space where a very large, very rotten stump is. I am planning on the chicken coop going there. It is the farthest from anyone else's yard, and yet close to the house. We are only planning on getting a couple birds this year. Perhaps 4? But I am excited that they will be so close to the garden so when I need them to, they can roam around and eat slugs for me. Healthy eggs, happy chickens, and no garden slugs? How awesome is that!
