Oh, I love my garden!
I made a trip to Rona today (like Home Depot, only Canadian) I'm looking for tall ornamental grass, but haven't been able to find any that is affordable. Instead, today I found strawberry plants for 99 cents! I got a few other perennials too, along with some basil that has me craving margarita pizza.
We've also been looking for an affordable trellis solution. My choice today was between a lovely arched trellis panel for $39, or bamboo for $1.09 each. I went with the bamboo and came home with five. I'll attach thinner pieces horizontally with wire, and use eye hooks (or plain nails) to attach it to the garage. This is the view of my former veggie garden, turned berry and herb garden. Kevin built the boardwalk last fall, and I absolutely love it. It made our backyard look somewhat civilised and looks much better than the worn path through the grass we had before. Plus, it gives me a whole new garden bed to plant!
