Ever dug a massive do-over?
Ever daydreamed of lifting all the plants out of a bed, amending the soil some more and replanting in a more perfect design? That daydreaming can get you in a lot of trouble. I could not garden this season till now because of surgery recovery time. So I keep gardening in my dreams.Reordering my 8 year old garden. Fixing all the rookie mistakes. Well I am doing it for real now. I refer to it as the "Big Dig" The tricky thing is, every bed has to have 30-90% dug because there is dividing to do. Give aways to arrange and plants from bed 1 have to go to bed 3 and some from 2 have to go to 1 etc. etc.(12 beds in all)18 days of digging do for about 5 hours a day. Oh yes, and no new plan would be complete without a few new plants ordered. Some Daylilies, Clematis and Peonies. There has been so many trips to buy bags of composted manure I could of bought a cow. It's been a boot camp intensive shape up for my reactivated muscles. Just add a little Tylenol and I can sleep like the dead. But, I am so excited to see the garden next season.
