Backyard Project

Two years in the making, I finally have a visual story of the progress (slow, but steady) in the backyard.

THE BACK, OF THE BACKYARD:

When I first moved in...


While the yard was cleaned up a bit, there was still that wire fence...


So we took out the fence, but it was accompanied by taking out a brick hearth. Messy.


New fence. Much better. Time to tackle the brick and planting some good stuff in the dirt.


Some well distanced planted perennials, that will explode next year (fingers crossed)


A little mulch helps in the back bed, and planted cornflowers and irises along the walkway


Some pretty blooming things


More pretty blooming things

VEGETABLE GARDEN:

The 5'x5' french vegetable garden


Vegetable garden expansion to 6'x20'


First veggie plantings, mid-May. I like the square pavers a lot for some reason.


Early June progress...it's coming in!


The grapevine really coming in, on the fence


Lovely little porch pots


And some potted herbs
