This is what the vegetable garden looks like right now. A hot mess! To the right, you'll see two new beds that we put in during the fall. We used old reclaimed wood beams from the attic. The wood was still in good condition, the hubs planed it and cut the boards to size. I am excited about having beds this year, because we can put in a better mix of potting soil, compost and amendments. I'm also hoping for less weeds. I have to clean up the garden, it looks disheveled. I haven't had time to clean it up between the raking of leaves, planting bulbs, and my regular house chores.
raking around the property, I've been keeping some of the lawn bags to use in the composter. I tried to hide it behind the garden so that it wasn't an eye sore. Were you able to see the bags from the above 3 photos? Because that is the view from our neighbor's perspective. However, the other day, one of our neighbors inquired about the lawn bags and asked my husband what our intention was for keeping bags of leaves. He explained to her that it was for composting and she was less than thrilled of the idea of us hoarding bags in our backyard.
