Preparation or lack thereof

The eagles have come and gone, the geese are passing through, and many of my friends are planning their gardens, and in fact, planting their seeds starts right now.

I am still trying to figure out what to do with different areas of the landscaping.  There are so many issues to deal with, but no good plan to deal with them.

Currently, I'm thinking:

Lemongrass along the front of the house, directly under the waterfall from our gutterless roof.  Herbs along the south wall of the house (mint, sage, chives, basil, thyme, and the like).  Cone flowers and Black-eyed Susans along the south-west and/or west side.  Alpine strawberries on the north side.  Sunflowers and sweet corn along the garage. Hops, tomatoes, peas, beans, lettuce, and more in the garden. And gooseberries, currents, and/or raspberries along the alley.

We'll look back at this list in September and see what really happened.
