After removing some large trees because they were too shady, we’re having to make shade in other ways, ironically. The aquaponics is now covered and the north side of the house has shonky shade along it, too, allowing some of the ground to stay cooler. Fabulous. It should help in summer.

We are expecting an extra hot summer.. the last few years have been bad enough.

The wall faces north, so it gathers a lot of heat during the day and warms the house up overnight. Not good in summer.

We have far less plants in pots now. The dog run around the garden has taken over in some areas, so the surface is somewhat variable in depth and angle, especially in the bermed corner sections. Vegie garden in the middle and tracks around between everything else.
