Last year we built a beautiful new garden in our new backyard. It quickly became my happy place - once again. Thank God for the beauty of the earth!
We got lots of compost, smothered the existing sod, fixed a drip line, created a trellis, and put in veggie planter boxes before it was too late to plant. We got a cute little coop for the chickens and I planted flowers and trees.
And as always, everything grew...
and eventually bore us the most beautiful fruit.
With it all comes the battle of the bugs, but really for a first year garden it was a beautiful thing.
Especially when the chickens started laying eggs at the very end there.
Give me a garden. Give me life.
This year - BEES!
