Starting over at newer bigger garden.
My DW and I just purchased a new lot (4 acres) and will spend the next year building the new house. Our current house was supposedly her dream home, but she changed her mind (as she does so very often) ;) Anyway, as I look at my gardens now I get sad thinking I will soon be leaving them behind, knowing that I have spent the past four years working to get the backbones in, and thinking 'it took me four years to get the backbones of this 1 acre lot in, just what have I gotten myself into with 4 acres?'
I have learned quite a bit about gardening in the last four years and hope not to make the same mistakes over again, I vow never to plant a hosta without putting gravel or perma-til in the soil (I AM NOT GOING TO FEED THE VOLES!), I vow not to cut down anything I can't identify (I probably removed some native azaleas one fall, just because I wasn't paying attention, fortunately I got tired and stopped clearing until spring and saw the beautiful flowers). I vow not to force anything into a spot for which it isn't suited. I vow not to plant invasives. I vow to not do anything until I have studied my woodlands for a year, I may just have some native trilliums or the like. Do you have any "I vow not to"'s I should be aware of?
