Spring is Here!
It has been sunny and beautiful so I finally weeded all of the mint out of the front yard and added new compost and soil. Lucy and I planted watermelon, beans, peas, marigolds, more strawberries, cucumber, and basil in our small four feet by seven feet front yard bed. We'll see how the plants do against the snails, earwigs, and roly polies. We're making the most of our small space.
I weeded the amazing grass re-growth out the side yard and filled in with some ranunculus and other flowers where our winter lettuce beds failed to thrive (the darn snails again).
In a month or so when the little house project is finished I should finally be able to start working on transforming the backyard away from plywood covered hell hole to green paradise.
