New bed in the making !
Well not really new but much larger and will be bordered.
It's my one and ONLY sun bed which includes some knock out roses and tall items in the back like 2 Red Tip shrubs,2 Reed grasses,a trellis, one Willow and Bee balms.
Now I can go to the garden mart and say "YES I can get that plant" which requires full sun because I have a bed to put it in. YAY !!
Some plants/shrubs are new and some have just been moved.
Also can pull the bed out a few more feet but not sure yet.
But there's a slight problem which is not making it larger or lack of sun but something else.
Ok, I shouldn't call it a problem, but it frustrates me.
Maybe you should just look at the last 2 pictures.
What's that red stuff you ask ?
Well, my husband grows many heirloom tomatoes which would look great as a background for my bed EXCEPT for that darn RED mulch/plastic and green pots.
He insist RED grows better tomatoes and of course keeps out the horrid weeds.
I thought about putting a fence or tall shrubs along the back of my new bed but it would block out the sun needed for his tomatoes.
Boy, I wish someone could tell him that black mulch/plastic works just as well.
I'm pretty sure I can do something with those green pots.
But what about that PLASTIC?
Maybe during the summer when my new bed looks almost perfect...I can suggest that black would make the yard look sooo much better.
Maybe we can move that very tall trellis against the fence for lima beans behind the new bed.
I'm sure I'm over reacting. His veggies are very important also, so we'll always be sharing the yard for gardening.
