Now that we finally own this joint, I feel good about ripping out the front yard and planting our garden. Sort of like the White House did, but on a….slightly smaller scale.
Why the front yard? Well, it’s the sunniest spot we’ve got, and while we love the fact that our back yard has great big trees for climbing and shade, I would be hard pressed to grow a veggie back there! And“, we wanted a spot that wouldn’t get trampled by various children, dogs, and chickens.
Ours was a true family effort (not to mention the handy efforts of our good friend Doug)….back-breaking at times, but worth every minute.
So….welcome to our garden! We’ll keep you posted on its growth throughout the summer, but for now you can bear witness to its birth.
