Here is this week’s progress on the cutting garden. Heather has been busy painting and on Saturday we put on the wire.
We get a lot of wild animals wandering through our yard – in addition to cats we also have squirrels, raccoons, roof rats, and skunks. All of which like to dig up and otherwise wreak havoc on our plantings. So the cage is designed to keep all those folks out. We got the idea from visiting the gardens at Filoli. They’re near woodlands and have a section of gardens in deer proof cages. Known as the cutting garden, these cages produce many of the cut flowers used in the main house.
This next week in the shop I have to circle back to the little libraries to finish up a few last details.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,
