Backyard Garden Clean Up

The Weather was beautiful for working outside and the temperature is finally staying above freezing. Time for some garden work! We do not have a bunch of trees in the backyard anymore, strong wind storms took them out over the past few years. No need to buy lawn bags very much anymore. I would love to start my own composting at home, just need to do more research into that. I don’t think the backyard with the kids is a wise thing (not when they are so young; 2 year old), the side yard does not get enough sun to give heat.

Jack, Julia and Thomas were great helpers. Pulling some weeds and clearing small branches to the compost bin for pickup. The yard needs a lot of work. I would love to add more top soil and build the flower beds back up again. But we can only do what we can, I choose to enjoy what we got and go with it. The kids really do have a great space to play in and our backyard is completely fenced in.

Pictures of the backyard and what got done this day.

One little Forget Me Not plant growing on the right by the small bush. I love them but they spread like crazy! I may let it stay and spread in that bed.
