Landscape Update & Garden Center News

Look at this-A blog two days in a row.  I wanted to share some changes here in the Village.  If you read one of our posts last year about the landscaping in front of our condo-click on this link for a reminder, I thought I would show you how the plants are maturing.

Here’s the front of the condo with the roses in bloom.


On the side yard we have added a lime tree and some additional plants to fill in the slope area.  The water tends to run off the slope when the sprinklers run, so it’s hard to get anything to grow.


The big news is that our friends Bob & Ronnie have share their garden plot in the garden center with us for the Winter.  The Village has two areas for community gardens, but there’s a waiting list to be assigned one.  We’ve been on the list for two years, but we still don’t have a space.  Here’s a view of the garden center where we’re growing some Winter veggies.

Here’s our planting area.  We’re planting strawberries, lettuce, spinach, peas, carrots, and beets.



We’re having a lot of fun planting.  As long as we’ve been married, we both have enjoyed working in the garden.  Especially Linda.  And this gives us space to play.  I’ll let you know in the Spring how everything grew, and if you live close we’ll share some of the bounty.
