Sadly, this is not my yard. I cannot remember where this picture came from, but I love it. It is inspirational.
It is what I have in mind for the garden next door. We want a greenhouse in the middle like this and that is taller than most. It will be a citrus house. The citrus, currently a Meyer Lemon, Bearrs lime and a Owari Satsuma mandarin, will be planted in the ground and there will be a heater for winter. I won't be getting a greenhouse for a while, so in the blueprint I'm working on, I will only plan for annuals where it will be eventually. There will also be a small orchard. I see they have a fig in a large pot. Funny, so do I. I love gardening.
That garden in your pic is excessively neat - even by my standards! Who needs that many lettuces ready all at the same time?? The potted fig though is something I like - I have one that is now about 3 feet tall.
What an inspiring picture! You know, I was inspired by a Martha Stewart magazine garden photo when we started here in 1999. Good plan Erin.
That is an inspirational garden. I would love a greenhouse, but am afraid the winds we get would tear it apart. - Margy
Too funny, you are so right. But it sure looks pretty with them all exactly the same. It looks like not a single leaf has been taken. Mine would look pretty ratty by then.
I would love to see that picture Brenda. Do you still have it?
I thought it got windy over here in Sidney!
yes i do. maybe I can photograph the pages and send those to you?
I got them Brenda. OMGOSH. You and the captain did an unbelievable job creating your garden using the pictures. I am in awe!! I am now inclined to use this is more of blueprint rather than inspiration. Thank you.
An inspiring veg garden, Erin... I would love to have ones, thanks for sharing.
I feel extremely lucky !! My son and his wife move into this house next week, and the garden shall commence!
