Double the dirt, double the fun
It took almost 3 years, but I finally convinced the Hubs to rip out a portion of our giant lawn to expand my garden-canvas.
Well hello, this year's home for corn; beans; squash; cukes; and tomatoes.
Bonus: my lawn-mowing time is now down probably about 8 minutes. I do like mowing the grass, but I HATE watering it. So I don't. And then it dies by the 4th of July, further cementing our status as the neighborhood hillbillies. Which on our block, I assure you, is a title for which there is very stiff competition.
I love this pictorial because I was at work when he did this project. I didn't even know he'd taken photos as he went until I just now found them on the camera.
And after all the work, he read my mind and got some shots of the flowers alongside the house.
And THEN, he stopped reading my mind, and went kind of a weird direction...
Thank you for the new patch of dirt, handsome! We will feast on corn chowder this winter.
