Garden Overhaul

Two weekends ago we took advantage of the free dumpsters the HOA brought in and did a little yard work. We tore out a ratty old fountain and cleaned up the planter area around the side of the house. Then my big helpers and I added lots of good dirt and planted some herbs we'll be able to use in our cooking this summer and fall. Maybe next year too - many herbs seem to be perennial around here.

Our clean slate, and Christopher trying to rake with a plastic golf club.

This seems to work better!

Adding the dividers

Digging a hole for the rosemary

Pushing the dirt back in

Last plant - parsley

Daddy even had to mow our lawn - yes it looks brown here, but it is a lot greener now
