Work in progress

So as of this coming July, we’ll have lived on our little slice of heaven for two years. We’ve done so much and still have so much more that we’re planning on doing. We are currently in the process of checking off another box from our to do list. This spring, we’ve finally broken ground on our garden!
We’ve known for awhile where we wanted to place our garden. We wanted it close enough to the house that it’s not a trek and a half to tend to it. We wanted it in an area where it would get great sun. It will need to be completely fenced off to keep dogs, rabbits, etc out of it. So we knew we had some clearing that would need to happen to the site.
We (and when I say we I mean my husband, Kev) pulled out old faithful our tractor. We hitched up the box scraper, and started working on the ground. I’m happy to say it’s cleared! The end result will not be done until sometime this summer if we’re lucky. But the land is cleared and we’ve already started some veggies in pots, so we’ve moved them out to the garden area so we can feel even more accomplished about our good days work!

This is the site before we started working on it. To the left is the end of our back yard lawn, to the right is what we call “the barn” .
This is an area right next to our patio. It’s decomposed granite and has our Fairy tree as well as our fire pit on it. What does this have to do with the garden? If you look at the rocks that surround it, you’ll see that we opened a space (removed the rocks) where we will be placing a path leading out to the garden.

The after picture. There were some straggler weeds that needed to be removed but all in all it looks great!

So if anyone has ideas or suggestions that they’d like to send us as we continue this gardening adventure feel free to message me. I’m all ears!!
