our little backyard garden

Backyard Veggie and Flower Garden
You can sorta see the 'before' garden at the top of the photo. Believe me when I say that it had a HUGE assortment of abundant weeds. Yesterday, Jake and I removed all the weeds, turned over the dirt, repositioned some existing plants, and planted some flower bulbs.

Whoa! Look at that catch!

We mapped out where all our veggies are going to go

Back left area is our raspberry patch -- still growing but we will be leaving some room for them to spread each year. To the right of the raspberries, by the lime stones, will be the herb garden with basil, sage, thyme, oregano, chives, peppermint, and spearmint.

In front of the raspberries will be cherry, grape and Roma tomatoes, bean, peas, peppers, carrots, beats, and strawberries. Probably won't be able to eat any strawberries this season but hopefully a bigger patch next year.

Front 3 feet of garden will be dedicated to perennial bulb flowers -- I hope they grow! I dug like 100 six inch deep holes yesterday!

Now we just have to maintain the WEEDS!
