When we moved into our house, the yard hadn't been taken care of for about a year. As a result, our yard hasn't quite reached the "looks nice" stage because it's still in the "being reclaimed" stages. It used to look crazy; now it looks a little less so. Here are some pictures! We still have a ways to go, but we're really happy with how much progress we've made so far.
|So, you can see we have a lot of weeds on the outskirts, but check out that grass! Green!|
|We're growing strawberries in the holes, and we haven't put anything in the actual bed yet. Baby steps.|
|Working on some raspberries!|
|Thank you, Joel! Also, check out those dandelions!|
|This picture is a couple months old. These (and other) weeds are currently my height.|
|Check out these massive green onions! The paring knife is in the picture for scale. We left these onions in the ground over the winter, and this is how I picked them in the spring. Nice!|
