In my last project post, I spoke about The Solution to The Problem. In this post, I'll give a few more details on the expansion as well as the timeline. We don't have an able bodied crew at the ready - this will change once the kids are a bit older ;) - so most of the work will be done by me, myself and I with the occasional spousal helping hand. Translation: This will not be a quick project!
After the trees were moved, we were free to start the expansion. A picture is worth a thousand words, even a very bad Google maps image, so here is a rough illustration of the planned vegetable garden expansion:
|House is on the right; the street cuts across the top left corner, neighbours driveway is on the left.|
Red = Current Area #1;
Blue = Expansion to Area #1;
Green = New ornamental border;
Green "flowers" = transplanted spruce trees
