A lot is happening here in our back yard! Can you see the little
scalloped bricks on the ground in the middle of this photo? They were taken from the back wall planting bed that was there from the previous owners. I don't really like the style, but we have'em, so I'm using them. Some of them are currently separating the walking lawn from the future orchard. Something more substantial will have to go there in the future. I'm just not sure exactly what will go there at this time. But I'm planning on something going there. Fortunately, gardens are a work in progress, and I'm flexible. I mean my plan is flexible, not literally me. Did I mention that some days I can't feel my arms, that is until they start to ache?
This view is looking north at the back of our home, with the back fence behind you.
It certainly goes with the 50's style of our home, I suppose. But as soon as we can afford it, I will might change it out for something else. Sorry for the crappy photo quality here. I bake better, much better, than I take pictures.
Anyway, you can see the Dorset apple trees are lined up very close to the wall. I didn't use any support trellis for them since they are free form espalier, and I'm kinda lazy. There's that darn green fig tree stump. Technically, we couldn't go with the dynamite, so my husband is slowly burning it. Soon, I'll be digging around the roots to help it along in its demise. That rose bush is also in the way of our future chicken coop, so it's gotta go bye bye too. By that I mean it has to be moved, not killed. Roses are one of the only plants I can't kill.
