Noob Garden Update #5 Green Acres, Not Quite an Acre.
Howdy! The Garden is alive, well, and enclosed! It is still a beginner’s experience in progress and we are totally having fun. Some of our plants are doing really well while a couple others didn’t quite make it. We replaced the Avocado tree with a Dwarf Tangelo tree, the Avo just didn’t make it after the 113 degree heat 🙁 , we also lost the fern and the stevia plant from the heat. We added a couple other flower plants to attract the bees and the butterflies. Our peach tree created its first peach but the squirrel got it first (teeth marks). 🙁 We are now looking into creating some raised boxes in the remaining areas to plant for fall and haven’t determined what we will plant. We also added a hibiscus plant to the outside of the fence at the end of the driveway. Adam has been a huge help digging holes and moving plants as we figure what works better where. Oh, I almost forgot to share this! Unplanned and in the right place, I came upon some organic herbs and I now have an inside herbal garden right inside our front door. The area is perfect for it as it can be closed off from the rest of the house by a secondary door. I have catmip, cilantro, and curry in the front area along with another flowering plant that I still need to transplant. So are count now : 7 fruit trees (tangelo, orange, peach, pomegranate, apricot, lemon,and plum, 7 vine plants (cantaloupe, watermelon, eggplant, cucumber, and grapes) , 3 varieties of tomatoes, a few peppers, a variety of flowers, corn, other herbs, strawberries, and roses (placed there by the previous owner). Enjoy the pics, I attempted to take them from different angles
