Up to the left is the orchard. Alex removed the two bushes that were blocking the orchard from view and put down free chipped wood mulch, so now, in the corner, you can see a tiny little Gravenstien apple tree in it’s pretty bed of mulch. It’s now 5 years old so it may actually produce a few apples this year!
This tree below is another apple. It’s a golden delicious!
It was SO overgrown when we got it that it has taken me the last two years of pruning to get it so it isn’t tangling in itself or touching the ground, but for the first time this year it looks healthy and beautiful. We put some mulch under this one too.
See the composter a friend is letting me borrow? Yep. I love it. And along the fence behind it is newly planted raspberry canes. May they be fruitful and multiply!
Here is my dahlia bed! Right along the back of the house where it’s nice and warm.
Now, here’s a question for you… Now that the grass is in the pathways, would you put wood mulch over it and make it all clean looking or would that be too ‘woody’ as I am planning on putting the bark IN the beds for mulch as well? I remember liking the garden pathways clean and clear two years ago, but I also like the garden looking lush and green with the grass. What do you think?
