This is my messy work area ... the place we all have where gettings things done takes precedence over esthetics. Judging by how it looks right now, I think I have to do something to strike a better balance.
Here's what I see in this photo:
1. The inside of the greenhouse is an ever-lovin' mess. I already took out most of the roses, but supplies and tools and pots are all over the place.
2. There are more pots piled behind the greenhouse. I have pots other places, too. I doubt I need this many pots, but I'm hesitant to get rid of them ... just in case. It's thinking like this that is contributing to the chaos.
3. I have to do something with this stack of pallets. They used to be lined up beside the fence with pots on them. I don't need them there anymore (more on this in a minute). If I use them for something else, I have to clean them up. If not, do I just get rid of them? I'm still deciding.
4. This small stack of siding needs to go back to the barn. I was going to use it on the greenhouse, but I changed my mind and will use something else instead.
5. This spot on the fence was once my tomato patch. Now, it's a dumping ground full of cobblestones, fence posts, bricks, landscape edging, and other hardscape supplies. I need all this stuff, and I have to have a place to put it until I use it, but this is definitely NOT the place.
6. The area beside the fence will be soon be another rose border. I moved the pallets from this spot, measured off a 6-foot deep swath, and sprayed it with Round Up. As soon as the grass and weeds in this spot are dead, I will install edging (from the pile in Item #5) and plant some roses from my pot village. Eventually, I will continue down the fence preparing the ground, finding new homes for items stashed there and enlarging the border till it reaches all the way down the fence behind garage ... 160 feet in all!
This is going to take a while.
