When we moved here, this hill was hidden by fallen trees, brush and a lack of care. This is the view from the kitchen area, near the washing machine which we will move to the basement so we can make this a sitting/eating area. The water connection will not cost too much, there is already plumbing down there. The dryer, which is rarely used when it is above freezing, will be moved too but maybe not connected for now. Some electrical work required. That can wait.
I spent all winter clearing this hill after fallen trees were cut up and split and small growth was cleared. Some unraked leaf circles remain, I used stone to isolate them and will cover them with grass clippings and mulch during the warm months, plant bulbs before winter. Right now they are compost piles. Some stuff has begun to regenerate. Myrtle, grasses, some wild garlic and moss. Planning to add clover and other ground covers native to the area. The pink dogwood is on the edge of bloom.
Just to catch a thought, I made this quick digital sketch. In my mind I layered the grow quilt over my recent garden redesign . Just a soft dream but asking What if(?) the cloth just becomes a recording, in sympathy with how the garden grows. How the season unfolds. A little Sympathetic Evolution. Will the garden then evolve from the cloth making as well?
