Date: October 2009. When my husband began work on two more additions to the single terraced growing space in the back garden, I didn't imagine what a fine job it would turn out to be. If you look at the fence in the background that separates our property from the neighbor's, you get an idea what kind of angle we had to work with. Early on in the beginning stage of setting up this lot, there wasn't much by the way of flat areas to grow things in, save for the very bottom. Now that I've got these, it's makes me one happy gardener. We're going to set up the netting for hail protection and hope for the best. I'm sticking with tomatoes, zucchini, beans, peas, pumpkins, melons and corn this year. Just enough to keep me busy, especially if we get a bumper crop of tomatoes and I actually get to do some canning this time around!
Two more additions to the front yard: forsythia to add some color in early spring and aubrieta for the rock wall.
