Kelly, your garden reminds me of when I dug up my front yard a few years ago. You're going to have fun for the next couple of years trying different things. A really good reason to do your own seeding and growing. It's going to be really nice. Edie

Ah... but just think of all the fun you'l have in the process! Thinking about what you're going to use, and arranging the plants ... then watching things grow....(at least for me) is the FUN part! (Do you have any nice neighbors who are dividing plants at present ??? LOL). You've practically got all the hard grunt work done. :D Great job. Looking forward to more pics of your 'work in progress'.

Would love to give you more....could show pics of the quack grass growing in it?!

Since I am getting the soil for free, and from my X....I can't be too demanding and he works on his own schedule...no one elses....

So...am still waiting...while I start to pot up plants that (already ) need dividing from my other gardens....at this rate I will be partaking in the end of season sales!!!LOL
