A Garden - We have a Garden

Thank goodness for heavy equipment.

Bart leveled out our garden spot for us.
And then we did what all the books told us to do, put down a layer of newspaper to kill the weeds.
We put the garden frames out then Bart and Jes moved gravel from where the Red Shed was for the paths in the garden.

Next came the garden soil, bags and bags and bags of soil.

And then the girls planted and planted and planted some more.

It looked great then and the seeds had not even come up.

And then off they went.....time to play.

As of today, January 10, 2012, the garden has survived 2 freezes. And it loves being watered with the collected rainwater.

And the Red Shed is out...........

Once upon a time there was red shed. It was ugly, and red, and an eyesore and I wanted it gone.The shed, the fence to fence nothing, all of it G-O-N-E, gone.
So I would fuss a little and tear a bit apart, and tear a bit more apart and then.....

NOW THE SHED IS G-O-N-E, gone. Even the white rainbarrels are gone, as well as the gutters hanging in front of the flag. We have a new fangled rainwater collection system on the well house.
Things are looking better don't you think.
