A Garden Blog

I had been using a blog for a homeschooling project back when my kids did that sort of thing (as it looks like they may do again), but it had been sitting around for better than a year, and I had an idea to use it as a place to organize my garden, so I’ve gradually been listing the plants that I have and the plants that I want, and a scalable map of the garden (which is already out of date, but awesome even so), and now I’ve started blogging a little too, though probably in a very interesting way. My approach (for all of two days now) is to list very factually what I did in the garden on any given day and to list also the interactions I have with people through the garden and because of it.  I have no idea what this will look like, but I’m doing it anyway.  Take a look if that sort of thing amuses you.

    I love the map. Are the raspberries located near the bottom of the map and closed in?

  2. Allan,

    I dug a three foot deep trench around the raspberries and placed gardener’s fabric in it vertically to enclose them. Otherwise they take over.

    Have the boys decided not to head back to regular school this fall? Or are you doing a mixture? (Feel free to post on this if it is a much larger question — I’m sure I’m not the only one who would be interested!)

  4. Lauren,

    At this point, and I stress the provisional nature of this statement, Ethan will be homeschooling in the fall, and Marlon will be attending public school.
