Prepping the beds

My husband was kind enough to pre mix the compost into the beds before he left. I just needed to churn it up a bit.

I always feel bad for disrupting the unsuspecting worms.

That was a big job and it’s a weight lifted. Grounds keeping is so much easier with a man around! I love doing it, I just wish I wouldn’t have slacked off for the last month. There is still A TON to do. It’s been one storm after another here. Hopefully we’ll be getting more ‘sunbreaks’ and I can keep up with it more appropriately.

Good for you! You have a gorgeous house and it is going to look awesome with all the gardening that you are doing!

I love your new blog direction! That's A LOT of work, my thumb is not so green, so I'm limited to four flower boxes on my deck, and a few pots in the front of the house. Now that we have a dog I wonder if he's going to try and dig everything up.

I love your house, & totally ENVY your gardening skilz!

We tried to grow a garden 2 years ago, & it was a total disaster. I'd love to be able to grow some of our own veggies, but I'm a certified plant-killer :(

Ummmm can I move in with you? That house! That garden! Everything is so green...

Seriously though, you are one lean mean gardening machine. Nice work!

YOUR homestead posts are AWESOME!!

First off, your house is gorgeous!

Next, I'm dying to work in the garden but I don't want to kill my back before the next race so I'm going to garden vicariously through you!!!

Do you get enough light where your beds are located??
Missed you :)...so happy to see and hear more about your life!
