no, just filling in the bare spot out back that
will get overgrown by hollyhocks, sow thistle or
grasses if i don't weed it. the strawberries
are still filling it in and it needs a lot more
mulch to reduce the weed sproutings. it is
about 700sq ft -- i don't have that much mulch
they do more damage to the bird population than
raccoons do. they are always around here. i don't
even try to discourage them as they are what i catch
when i put out the live trap to get the raccoons.
the pine tree only drops some of the needles.
all deciduous trees are to the N or NE along
that edge and that is a good place for them
the winds come out of the S or SW most of the
if i were in the south i'm sure we'd want the
shade trees too. a few hours less of sunlight
here or there would not be a major loss. i'd
probably live in a hobbit hole. :)
our radishes grew in three stages and looked like
snowmen when we finally pulled them out, about 8-10
inches long. no idea they'd get that big. :) great
ground cover or cover crop with the big leaves. won't
likely grow them again though. rather use the space
for things we do eat.
