The Veg Garden is born

We did it. We took the rotting wooden flower bed apart and created room for veggies to grow. Yes, it looks like we’ve buried four bodies and a dog in the backyard right now but by next summer, we’ll have a lovely veg garden growing in these beds. We’re so excited.

Now, to figure out how to tame the wisteria. I pruned the heck out of it and it looks a bit like Don King. I don’t have a ladder tall enough to trim the top. I’ll have to wait until I can acquire one. I figure it won’t do it any harm to have its branches trimmed once all the leaves fall. By the looks of it, it hasn’t been pruned in years so it will be interesting to see what it does in the spring after I’ve chop-chopped this winter. But all gardens are works in progress…

Where am I?
