I’ve gotten up to the 1.5 meter level and the finishing touches are done, so now this section too will be covered for warmth and dryness until next spring.


Next year I hope to get this part done, including the arch above the opening, then landscape the area and plant a peach tree. There is a grape vine already getting established, if I don’t trample it too much. And more zone 1 plants will go in.

I just wish the yew hedge to the west – for cutting off the prevailing winds – would grow as quickly as the stone wall.
