Plans for our Vegetable Garden

  1. Rachel says:

    Smart to fill the bottom with wood! We have questionable soil here due to it being an old mining area and the cost of soil for one garden bed made me want to cry! I may do the same thing if if can source enough wood.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh goodness, I probably don’t want to know the cost! Definitely keep your eye out for discarded brush, sticks, and wood!

    One minor comment. Instead of Landscape Cloth see if you can get a roll of Geotextile (you would want the non woven) for your pathways under the pebble/ rock you will never get a weed. It is used for road building and hillside landscaping. We live in north central BC (Canada)and get a lot of nasty strong weeds. This material is supplied in the States by Nilex. They would be a major supplier

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Actually… I believe that is what we got. It arrives today so I will check it out.

    Keeping your chicken coop away from your living area is super smart. I don’t care how clean you try to keep it-there will be flies and other small furry things that you don’t want by your house. It’s also next to your garden which is a great place for your composted bedding. Living in the country is great and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I will put up with the extra pests and four legged critters any day. Love your area inside and out. I am sure it makes you not want to leave the place for any reason!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you, Holly. It’s so nice to have everything we need at home. It does make us not want to leave. We are so happy we finally made the move back to the country.

  4. Stephanie Durdan says:

    I can’t wait to see how you do the fence around your garden. We have two huge gardens on our farm and a fence around them is a dream I have.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Stay tuned! We are really looking forward to our fence, as well! In addition to keeping the animals away, I think it will really help shape this big, open area.
