+FRONT ADOBE GARDEN FINISHED
October 27, 2010 by alchemynow
This last post on the adobe work, +MORE MUD WORK — ADOBE CONTINUES
shows what the front west yard looked like as I began work on it. Here I am posting pictures of the front dug out and finished, planted, drip irrigation in, as I wait for something to grow now! I am working my way down the west side of the house, but stubbed my right thumb and sprained it on Sunday so am taking a break!
starting the northwest corner, honeysuckle on left (now moved) and jasmine on street side
climbing roses and trellis (honeysuckle gone), yard dug below the Bermuda grass 'line'
my little 'fields' with walkways are planted with green manure winter crop, hairy vetch and winter rye
yellow roses will climb over their trellis, my 3 planted miniature fields
new garden on west side planted for winter under plum tree - adobe wall also from front yard dirt (I ran out!)
snapdragons under plum tree on west (I put adobe on its root suckers - will they stop growing?)
4" deep adobe walkway down west looking south, most dirt from front went here (my strange wooden fence!)
took out the quince, west side of house looking north (back door) - and then sprained my thumb here pulling boards off fresh adobe 'ring'
north - front - looking west - dark pots = left apple, right is lilac, not sure where to plant these yet
last winter's snap returned in bucket
