We headed over to Home Depot, and for around $100, made some major improvements to the backyard. He did a ton of trimming, worked on digging up some bushes to transplant in a different location, and also planted 3 trees (2 of them are peach trees, which I'm very excited about). I planted some herbs and vegetables, and generally bossed him around the rest of the time. We got some sun, some dirt on our hands, and overall had a great time. I'm sure my mom is laughing because I'm not known for having much of a green thumb, but it was a fun way to spend an afternoon together. And hopefully, fingers crossed, we'll have some fresh herbs and veggies soon. (Unless his dog continues to eat the broccoli I planted.)
|Veggie Garden Before.|
Marley is already stalking the empty bed.
|Veggie Garden After.|
Two kinds of tomatoes in the back, broccoli in the middle, and peppers in the front.
|Compost Bin Before.|
Hunk built this himself, but it really needed a few friends.
|Compost Bin After.|
We moved some Texas Sage Shrubs from another location to here.
|My favorite- Strawberries!!! Not sure if they'll take, but I'm hoping to grow at least a few before Marley eats them. I also planted basil, oregano, rosemary, tarragon and mint close to these.|
