Before and After

It’s always interesting to look back and see how things have changed in a year. In April 2013 we had just cleared our neighbors’ backyard of blackberries and were getting ready to plant. 12 months and an excellent crop of potatoes later, it’s difficult to imagine that not too long ago this place was entirely covered in a jungle of blackberries. This year we’ve planted garlic, more potatoes, and created a little nursery area to hold our propagated cuttings. Too bad there aren’t any more neighboring yards for us to take over.

Before: just finished clearing brambles and putting in the first beds





After: ferrocement retaining wall, hog panel fence, debris removed, raised beds re-established

  1. I love to see garden boxes in backyards….we have 3 really nice sized in ours. It’s time to weed and clean a bit and do our Spring/Summer planting. 🙂
