It just dawned on me this morning that we are into August and the local Farm Market hasn't had any corn yet... have heard anything about , why that is...
Have a love/hate relationship with the sun
The garden and the peach tree's love it but my grass is taking a beating. Hoping to start to fix that this fall, I thought the tree's I put across the front would be a bit taller now after 3 years but they aren't growing and I lost one this spring so looking at replacing them with Yoshino Cherry this fall.

This weather hasn't been good to the corn farmers this year, drought has taken a tole on everything that didn't have irrigation and reports now food prices this fall will rise 3 to 4%

Here's another design I'm thinking about, gives me more landscaping to work with for tree's and rather then the pics above where the landscaping's got inward coves this is coved outward so can get the mower around it easier.

Less turf & more landscape , is the way I'd go too... easier mowing lanes is a better idea as well...

Thanks smallaxe

Probably move some landscaping timbers around this weekend and do a little roundup on the inside. Garden side can wait till fall as I don't need pine bark there I need a scoop or two of top soil.

Ok guys I started moving things around, nothing is roundup yet so could still make changes what you think?

This section is done, timbers cut and in place:


These sections I just have the landscaping timers laid in place to see how it looked before I did anymore but thats next, heat run me inside today




This looked better angled like the other side of the garden:

Looks good... now for a dozen mid-sized plants with lots of flowering potential and plenty of food besides...

Have a pecan and a apple tree on order for the right side of the shed. The tree on the left side of the shed is a pecan and needs a pollinator.

In front of the shed next to the knock out rose is a peach tree.
