Garden Day 1

January 9, 2010

Ok, so not really day 1, but here’s what the backyard looks like now.  I only moved in 2 months ago,  so most of the work on the house has been on the inside.  I’ve kept the backyard pretty much untouched other than to extend the fence to the front yard and put up a gate.  It needs a good mow.  But just 1 until we put in the planting beds.  Hopefully those will be ready in the next couple of weeks. Right now, the weeds in the back are so thick and healthy that I see a whole natural permaculture thing going on there.

My boyfriend Vincent and his dad are going to build the planting beds.  We are planning out the beds using 3 sources:  the article on how to build raised planting beds from This Old House, The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible, and the boys’ carpentry and metal-work know-how.
