This was what our backyard looked like when we first moved in. Pretty simple, with a few concrete pavers & a lot of mulch! It was the perfect canvas to start a new garden! After scooping up the old mulch, we tore up the weed barrier & tilled the ground. Well, we tried to till it. It was rock solid, so we (and by we, I mean Andrew) had to manually break the dirt up before we could even till it.
After much hard work, we (and by we, I mean I) laid more pavers for a fuller path to the gate, planted tomatoes, corn, & pumpkins, and a few other flowers.
And this is how the garden currently looks. Our pumpkins have gone wild and have taken over the whole garden! The corn if finally producing corn and while we have about a million green tomatoes, we've only seen 2 red ones. Hopefully they'll turn red soon!
