I can't wait for my cottage garden this year! We built this pretty little thing in April of 2010 and it has been my obsession since. Every year I try do a better and better job of perfecting the balance of production and pretty. I added more strawberry's last year that should mature this year. I can't wait for that. If the whole thing was strawberry's we wouldn't have enough. Good thing we are putting in a 25ft/5ft raised bed in the orchard garden.
This year I will be starting a pretty large hoop house too, so I don't have to worry as much about cramming the Cottage Garden as full as possible. I really want to focus on making it as pretty and edible as possible. I'll be sprinkling in flowers were ever a blank spot presents itself.
