Finally, Almost Finished

September 18th, 2013

It was very early this spring that I settled on a layout for the potager behind the house. There was one small problem, I had planted my garlic in one corner last fall. That meant that I couldn’t finish one of the walkways in the garden.

All summer it’s been bugging me because it looked incomplete. This past week, I finally finished the last walkway!

My plan is to keep expanding this garden, surround it with either rock walls or a boxwood hedge and put a greenhouse at the end of the walkway that starts right off the back door (which is the path below). I’m also going to add a composting area behind a perennial border on the upper side of the greenhouse. ┬áThe walkways may also paved in bricks.

There’s something nice about finally finished something you started in the spring. There are so many more things to do, but it’s nice to officially check something off the to-do list!

Have you recently finished up any garden tasks you started back in the spring?
