Hi. I wanted to show you what I did in my backyard. I love to garden and produce as much food as possible, however, we have a very small yard as you will see.
I planned to make my small garden bed bigger and reorganize in the process. The following pictures are before:



The messy area on the right are apple trees. and blueberry bushes that I had to get rid of as they don't grow well here...oh well, live and learn.

The area on the left is a bed in the process of being enlarged. I started to replant some bulbs and made a pathway which is an idea I eventually scrapped.


The size of the backyard is pretty much what you see in the pictures--very small.

The following pictures are after:





Garden stones are placed in curving lines and bed has been extended. I did not realize what I was creating until I was finished, but the curving lines sort of make a womb shape Wink So in honor of that I planted some red blooms in that area Cheesy
Self watering planters on far end of yard. Other than flowers, I planted tomatoes, onions, herbs, carrots, peppers, and peas.
We planted grass over the far area which had woodchips on it.
As you can see, we planted grass which now needs to be cut Grin
Also, the apple trees have branched out nicely and are full of little green apples:



The blue and purple plastic cartons are home-made self watering planters with peas growing in them. I actually got the info on how to make them from here on craftster and they really work Smiley

So, that's that. Next is the front yard whew!

I'm so jealous!  My garden has to be protected from rabid rabbits and over-ambitious deer with an ugly chainlink fence...  Cheesy
