The dead trees will be taken out in the Canadian hemlock will be placed there... surrounded by Colorado blue spruce. Where the small pine trees are I'm going to build a veranda/arbor and grow roses over it. I plan to place my fire pit out in front of the veranda with some stones around and swinging benches so that we can have a fire pit out underneath the stars. Better yet let's have a circular veranda with roses and swinging benches and in the center have to fire pit!!!

I am working on my veggie plan tonight I hope to have it finished so that I can post a picture of it tomorrow. I'm also thinking about doing the big orchard instead of the small and just taking my time with it. Maybe if I prune the trees to be dwarves they'll fruit sooner??

|Here, have a cookie. :)|
|This is the grape arbor that I plan on planting to have our Mid Summer Night's Dream Parties under. It will make a pleasant shady picking spot in the hot Texas summer.|
|Notice the bean arbor...another shady spot. This is almost the exact layout of my vegetable garden in the keyhole of the patio.|
Its 5:55 a.m. I am about to go out for morning walk before waking the kiddos for school. Here is what I came up with last night. Either, order 48 3-4' trees to complete the orchard as drawn below...and wait 5 years for any yield...or plant a 14 6-7' trees that will feed us next summer. The difference being a fraction of the amount of trees for twice the money...but immediate fruit. I am hoping to go ahead and plant the 14...and as we save more we can put in the rest. That way, while we wait for the large orchard...the small should feed us.
