Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
Last week, I had "before" pictures for you....this week, I have an "after" picture and a "before" picture.
Lets start with the AFTER pic....our neighbor found the key to our gate, so my husband was able to get the lawnmower back there. I spent the most of last Sunday pulling weeds (and I'm still feeling it). It's not an English Garden, but it is a heck of a lot better than it was a week ago.
Now, the BEFORE pic. This is our side yard...as you can see, the raspberries have taken over and the garden boxes are in need of some work. My husband needs to cut the berries way back anyway as we have to have our house painted this year. We're only planning on putting pumpkins in this year, but we need to get rid of the massive mint plant--my husband is very proud of that plant, but we NEVER use mint in anything. The composter isn't going anywhere, but we probably should do something with its contents as it is full to the brim!
I won't have an after pic of this area for a while, but it is at least a glimpse of our upcoming yard work projects.
