needless to say, me and my 'green thumb' were not going to play well with it in it's current condition. :) Last summer we tackled the fence - which we have been super happy with.
and this spring...we have pulled out a whole lot of a gardeners love and good intentions and are left with this....
I can manage a big empty lot of black soil right?? This past week we even pulled out the plum tree situated in the middle of the yard which opened it up a ton. Kinda sad to pull up a fruit tree, but not really plum fans and it was right in the middle of the yard so the plan is to someday replace it with another fruit tree further to the side. We transplanted the raspberries further back on the lot as well. We then hauled in a few yards of top soil to level out the old garden site and are now just sitting pretty, waiting for our sod! :) So exciting! It is going to be so great to finally have a space for the kids to run and play - and put an end to the mud and dirt piles!
So yeah - not looking like a lot right now,....but if you squint you can see potential right??
