But anyway, here is our "park". Pretty amazing right? I LOVE all the trees. So lucky that the family who very first lived in this home had a tradition of having live Christmas trees, and then planing them in the yard after the winter every year. Beautiful and we have a variety of conifers around to swoon over.
The part I really am looking forward to creating is my garden/farm. I have seeds started and a rough plan in my head. So I wanted to make sure to do this right this time. I almost always forget to take before pictures and end up explaining, unclear and lamely, what we had to work with at the start. This, is our right side of the yard. Not on the piping grid of the sprinkler system but yet perfectly in it's range ( YESS!! score).
Now I plan my plot. My raised beds ( three total if I can ) will be for a bounty of vegetables and sunflowers will line the fence for privacy. I am excited to say the least. When we moved I went through the major labor of explaining the importance of moving the compost WITH the compost roller. What? You don't know what a compost roller is? Well let me show you. Because I am overly proud of the awesome beast that turns my garbage into gold.
I love my luck with this yard and all the possibilities for my farm. Let this glorious journey through my photos begin. And if you live locally, you can probably sign up for produce hand outs because when I do it right I become a bit of an overachiever. And if you are like me, lets have a veggie trade!!!! Take it back to the olden days and barter figs for squash and junk!! Yep I am a solid earth nerd.
