how does your garden grow?

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.


Well we started the spring fun last week! We are loving having our own yard to do as we please. Were ripping out bushes, creating a garden, removing cement, weeding and did i mention weeding?



Here we ripped out some concrete slabs and evened out the land. Can you see its in a ‘L’ shape? The little piece jutting off we will plant grass seed to fill in the holes where the concrete was.

Then we decided bigger is better. Why not try planting some other things then just potatoes, peas & carrots?


So we tackled the other side of the deck to create more room.


This is how i help garden when im not feeling well, I keep dave company.


Now on Saturday we tackled the front of the house. We had these nasty shrubs and i am not sure of the name but they grow from one root.

This is one truck load full and its still consuming half of the front yard. Were gonna do a flower bed in the front and plant grass seed.


Here’s Dave showing off his muscles after he pulled out the root! It took us forever to get that stubborn root out. Its crazy how from one root grows so much shrubbery.

So we took a load to the dump Saturday. This morning the man who runs Bridge Villa Estates came in with a tractor and picked up the rest of the branches for us. We are so grateful!

Here's some of the flowers starting to grow.



Happy Spring!
