|One of my favorite spots in the garden|
First, I'll give you a brief history of me. That way you can have an idea what to expect from this blog. I am currently, living in a passive solar house, built in the 70's by a 'Back To The Land Mover'. I am nestled in the woods of Maine, with my 'Fiance', (this is kind of a family joke, because he is the Father of my three kids; ages 13 yrs, 12 yrs and 4 months) our 3 kids, 4 dogs and 6 chickens. Before we moved here (6 months ago), we lived in Wyoming for a year (I'll save that story for another time).
When it rained the water would cascade down and around
this trellis. We used this instead of a down spout.

This garden was only on a half acre, but I managed to create several garden rooms full of grapes, hops, blueberries, medicinal herbs, apple, pear and pomegranate trees. Along with several rooms for just vegetables and other ones for cut flowers. I built trellises from sassafras trees, for my roses, beans, gourds and morning glories.
