So this is the south side of the house. The first part of the garden is a strawberry patch. I'm tempted to fill in the rest with strawberries except the grass creeps in and the strawberries creep into the grass.
Last Friday I raked out the strawberry patch. Then I tilled the rest of this flower bed. There is one little straggly bush that lived. The Salvia is doing well as usual. I plan on putting Mountain Box Wood back here. It doesn't turn golden like those I have out front, it will stay a pretty blue green and they can handle the heat coming off the rear of the house. Thank you Fonnsbeck Greenhouse for that tip!
I also tilled up the flowerbed on the West side of the deck but it was still really muddy.
And then I tackled the edge of the hill but it was also really muddy. I made a huge mess here so I had to grab the rake and fluff up the edge of the grass and try to scrape some of the mud back into the flowerbed.
