Planting Trees for the Kitchen Gardener

     When you are planning your special plot of precious garden area, whether it be a small vegetable garden or the overall larger area that includes your home, yard, outbuildings etc., be careful of what effect your dream will have 50 years from now.
      I am presently living in a private area of 134 homes that was established about 45 years ago.
     The original owner has passed on, leaving the park in the care of his son.

     What brought me here is the beautiful layout of the homes,  nestled in amongst the towering fir, pine and other evergreens with poplar or what have you trees sprinkled here and there.
     At the present time the beauty of the plantings like blue spruce, is being criticized because of the immense size they have grown to. Only a few are causing real problems. Those being under power lines.

      So what I want to conclude here is, project your mind into the future when planting. Visualize as best you can what your plantings will be like 50 years from now.
