Before and after photos of the little side garden. I had just let it go for about ten years and the majority had been taken over by small trees, bushes and raspberries. You would think it would not take very long to clear a small plot off but Puppy took several days to clear and chop out bushes and trees. Then we had to take the Massey Ferguson and chains to pull up stumps. Finally it was ready to plant. Puppy need guidance as he had never planted a garden before so the ole farmer Mom helped and advised what had to be done. Note we kept some of the raspberries that had climbed over the fence.
I have my herbs seeds in pots and my tomatoes along the porch. After I fertilize and weed, I will put down newspapers and cover it with straw to keep out future weeds and keep the moisture in the ground. Puppy also wants to do the same with his garden.
Can you believe my clematis has climbed to the top railing and has begun to creep along the rail.
Here is a close up view. After all the plants and seeds were in the ground and pots, I was cleaning up the trash and bagged up a couple of bags. I took them down the cat walk to the last trash can and yes I lost my balance twice and fell into the magnolia tree twice. Hope y'all enjoyed this post number 1,000. The kitty justice is the post is just another story of life on the hill.
