A Garden's Bones

Today was the day! Gorgeous Spring weather and a delivery of compost!




Time to take a look at the main garden and decide where the paths should go...




Now to dig in...


Doesn't it look beautiful!!



And now to take a look at the back garden and decide where paths should go...



Beautiful!


We got the peas in on the right side. And a bean tower will go where the girls are standing. The pine trunk in front of the compost bin is where one of the new peach trees will go.

And yes, my neighbor strolled by to see what all the action was about, and when I told him all the plans he said, "Michelle Obama would be proud." To which I of course replied, "And I'm proud of her, too, so it works out!"


Happy Spring!

Cool.

My landlords live next door, and have set up an area in 'my' backyard for gardening. My area has no paths, but my landlord's does. After 18 years of no garden, I'm trying to remember what I'm supposed to do.

Buckeye ...

ina, this is awesome! your before and after photos (and i'm sure the many to follow) are so fun to see. you accomplished quite a bit. the ground up here in the hills is still too wet to work i think but this weekend i'm hoping to sow some peas and lettuce.

It really looks wonderful! I'm insanely jealous.

Mr. V. sent me an image of a sort of portable greenhouse yesterday; I replied, "So, did you order me one?" He said, "Not yet." So maybe I'll get one and I can grow some stuff protected from salt air, woohoo!

I hoe you all have a great time with it.

Happy Spring to you, too!
