The part of the garden on the left is much longer than what you see. Until last summer when we knew we were going to sell the house, I had three 6 foot long raised beds filled with vegetables. It was my pride and joy! Over the winter the weeds took hold big time, so I spent most of the afternoon weeding and re-tilling that area. When I was done I raced down to Lowe's and picked up 20 primroses which I planted along the edge and some bark for under the Mimosa tree. I've amended the soil over and over with countless bags of compost and soil over the years. Thank goodness, because it made the weeding much easier! I also bid a fond farewell to my wonderful worm population back there. Libby will understand.
Above to the right you can just make out an empty bird feeder. Below on the right if you click on the photo you can see the replacement block I put on today. Can you believe it was entirely eaten in just three days since this weekend? Our bird population is pretty hungry right now! Most of our feeders are packed away - but I couldn't let them starve!
