Backyard Prep

A lot has happened in our backyard since the last backyard prep entry "Saying Goodbye to our Grass section at a time."

Heavy equipment was brought in to break through the sod mesh and hard-packed earth. And at long last, each section of our yard is devoid of grass (makes it a little tough for the puppy to poo) - but it has opened up garden space that we can use to grow some of our own food this summer and fall with enough (fingers crossed) to put away for use in the cooler winter months.

Oddly enough, I haven't taken many bare ground pictures and haven't taken any of the 15'X21' space earmarked for crops this year (tilled and rowed). However, in this picture you get a pretty good idea of the amount of sweat and tears that has been put into this project so far...and much of the far right side of the yard is designated garden space for now...
