Yesterday I changed my header picture to be a picture of
last years garden. I wanted you to know that that was how
it looked like last June in 2010.
I don't want you to think that it looks like that in 2011 so I went out
and took a picture this afternoon.
This is what it looks like today. Just dirt and a few
weeds. Nothing is planted yet. I don't even have my
beds laid out yet. I want too but my husband is still working
on the lawnmower.
Julia from Petals and Wool asked for some before and after pictures.
So here is one side of my yard this is a couple days after I started weeding.
Today, I finally wimped out and asked my son if
he would get the weed eater and finish the rest. I am
a perfectionist but I realized I am going to kill
myself trying to get it perfect so he buzzed it for me.
My husband will go into the neighbors pasture soon and plow
a fire break next to our fence so that will take care of the weeds
you see that are still there. I am terrified of fire. I have seen this
place burn before and I like there to be fire breaks.
I didn't take a before picture of the work I did yesterday.
I took one this morning. This is looking down our driveway
to the road. I hula hoed the whole length of the driveway.
I like it all clean when the Citrus trees start blooming.
The Avocado is starting to bloom too so I want them to get
as much water as possible and not share any with the weeds.
I only have tiny little seedlings growing right now under grow
lights so there is really nothing to show other than weeds.
I didn't want anyone to think I had this great garden already.
We can still get frost so I never plant anything until after Easter.
I have learned not to trust April when it comes to my garden.
My hand are so sore I don't think I could hold a needle right now.
I just wanted to show you how it looks, not at all like my last years
garden. Yet. :)
Have a Wonderful Thursday!
