We just relocated to the olympic peninsula. As we settle in, I want to build a garden where I can work on and display my trees as well as grow some fruits and vegetables. @MACH5, @JudyB and others have shown the great work they have done. I thought I could start at the very beginning and have an ongoing thread on this. I chose a location on the west side of the yard. It gets the first sun of the morning and remains sunny until mid afternoon. There is a wooded belt west of it that breaks up the cool winds that occur here frequently. Here are a few pics of the area before I did anything but drive in a few stakes. . Right now all the trees a jammed together on the deck. That won’t do especially with a hungry doe hanging out here all the time.
