Re-visiting the To-Do list and Veggie Garden 2009

So, here is the updated 2009 To-Do List:
  • Finish master plan of the yard
  • Re-landscape garage bed
  • Re-landscape west wall bed (aka fireplace bed) (become potentially optional)
  • Re-level brick patio
  • Power-wash trellis and mailbox post
  • Fill in holes in front bed (dead junipers and rose bushes)
  • Plan out vegetable garden
  • Re-mulch front yard beds
  • Get rid of barberry bush in back
  • Place stepping stones from garage to back yard (potentially optional)
  • Look at and either remove or repair yard sink
  • Trim large bush trio in back
  • Prune Mugo out front after killing the evil sawflies
  • Clear out back woods (lots of dead and dying hardwoods)
Not bad, eh? The big item - the re-leveling the brick patio - happened this past weekend. Eric will be blogging about it but, suffice to say, I can barely move today.

We also planted the veggie garden this weekend. We changed plans slightly when at the nursery. We decided we're going to let the far-east bed go fallow this year and just plant 2 beds. Part of the change was because we decided that growing broccoli and other plants in that family wasn't worth the hassle. But also because we discovered that our local supplier has leeks, shallots and garlic available for growing! HEY!

So here's what's in the beds this year.

Bed 1: beans, peas, cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, chard, eggplant, chamomile, zucchini, summer squash, onions, shallots, collards
Bed 2: SIX tomato plants, two tomatillo plants, cilantro, rosemary, oregano, parsley, basil, jalapenos, habanero, poblano, bell peppers, onions, leeks, shallots, garlic
