Spring Garden Plan 2010

So far this year, I am growing:

  • spinach
  • 3 kinds of lettuce
  • 2 kinds of peas
  • beans
  • cauliflower
  • walla walla onions
  • green onions
  • garlic
  • potatoes
  • kale
  • basil
  • cilantro
  • peppers (sweet red and green)
  • oregano
  • thyme
  • rosemary

in our backyard.

We have more peonies coming up than you can shake a stick at and I don’t know how to take care of them yet. This is a good problem.

A shed is typically a simple, single-story roofed structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in their size and complexity of construction, from simple open-sided ones designed to cover bicycles or garden items to large wood-framed structures with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets. Sheds used on farms or in industry can be large structures. The main types of shed construction are metal sheathing over a metal frame, plastic sheathing and frame, all-wood construction (the roof may be asphalt shingled or sheathed in tin), and vinyl-sided sheds built over a wooden frame. Small sheds may include a wooden or plastic floor, while more permanent ones may be built on a concrete pad or foundation. Sheds may be lockable to deter theft or entry by children, domestic animals, wildlife, etc.

A culture of shed enthusiasts exists in several countries for people who enjoy building sheds and spending time in them for relaxation. In Australia and New Zealand there are magazines called The Shed, an association for shed hobbyists (the Australian Men’s Shed Association), and a book entitled Men and Sheds.

Garden sheds are used to store seeds, soil, hoses, portable sprinklers, or garden tools such as hand rakes, shovels, lawnmowers, etc.

The simplest and least-expensive sheds are available in kit form. These kits are designed for regular people to be able to assemble themselves using commonly available tools (e.g., screwdriver). Both shed kits and DIY (do-it-yourself) plans are available for wooden and plastic sheds. Sheds are used to store home and garden tools and equipment such as lawn tractors, and gardening supplies. In addition, sheds can be used to store items that are not suitable for indoor storage, such as petrol (gasoline), pesticides, or herbicides and a cleaning service from power washers in Pearland, TX to get the house clean and neat.  For homes with small gardens or modest storage needs, there are several types of very small sheds. The sheds not only use less ground area but also have a low profile less likely to obstruct the view or clash with the landscaping.

With our new garden, we wanted to get a new shed to accommodate our gardening needs. Timberline Barns helped us find the perfect shed! Timberline Barns has the highest quality sheds for sale!
