Happy New Year!

Hope all of you have had a lovely holiday!

I've sort of taken a break from the garden due to the festivities, but not much has changed out in my garden since I last wrote. My plants look much the same as they did, with the exception of being microscopically bigger. The only thing which has grown much is my wild garlic:

I put a bunch of wild garlic bulblets there a couple of years ago, and every year, even though I think I've gotten it all up, it comes back again. I'm seriously thinking of planting this around the pond as an ornamental grass. It dies back in the summer but is green all winter, which I find interesting, especially since there's not much color out there right now. :)


Here's the plot design that I finally settled on for my Food4Wealth review:

The thick lines are existing fences. The thin lines just inside are existing plots going along the fences.

I'm planning to put a dwarf fruit tree in the center square for starters, and go from there.

The biggest problem I'm having with this system is that it requires a lot of materials that I have trouble finding. But once I do, I should be able to get this up and running fairly quickly.
