My dream was always to grow a little garden of my own when I bought my first house.
Well, after A LOT of hard work, we succeeded!
We have come such a long way in our backyard, however, we have such a long way to go.
Our backyard was a disaster when we first moved in!
Here is one "before" picture of a little side yard.
This picture just does not do it justice of just how bad it really was.
The weeds were SO overgrown.
By the time I had taken this picture, we had removed a large amount already.
After removing every weed and every blade of grass,
Brian and I sifted through the dirt with a make shift strainer Brian made.
So...here is an "after" picture of my garden today:
So far, I have grown: Cilantro, lettuce, squash, spinach (the spinach didn't do so well)
The orange tree was relocated as I came to find out it was not a dwarf as I originally thought.
That might cause us some trouble.
Oh well. We'll see what happens.
Today I planted lettuce, basil, spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, kale and rainbow chard.
PS-I have no idea what the heck chard is!!!
I am just super excited to grow stuff!!!
I am learning so much with every little harvest.
I cannot wait to really live off of my land in my own backyard.
Stay tuned to see what my little garden looks like this spring.
