How did you start your Cottage Garden?
I'm always curious to see how gardens get their early beginnings...I've had to leave my lovely cottage garden when we moved this past year. :( Combine moving and baby number three, and I haven't had much time to get a garden started here! Our new property has some great bones - sun AND shade for starters - and I've spent many happy hours daydreaming of a "someday" garden.
At this season of life my mantra has to be to "just enjoy the little bit of gardening time that you have!" :) Anyway, this summer I'm planning on starting the first stage of the new cottage garden. (yay!)
How did you begin yours? Did you envision a grand master plan and work toward it? Or just plunk and run? Did you create new beds to start with or work with what was already existing?
