(Funny side note, the above lines were written weeks ago. Alas. That is the way things go)
To battle the depression, I thought I would post some before and now pictures to truly get a grasp on just how much has changed. However, now the garden has changed even more and I need new photos. :P
(Extra Funny Side Note: The above lines were written almost two months ago)
Let's skip the long and blather and just post some photos because I have another post I want to make.
Garden when we moved in (view from the house):
After I cleaned it up and planted a few seeds:
After I have totally rearranged the layout and gotten rid of the beds:
A from-above view with the new pond and polytunnel:
In the background, you can also see that we put on new roof on the grange (J, his brother, and a friend put it on, but I get to say that I helped with the rain gutters), getting rid of the asbestos one it had upon purchase of the place. You might not be able to tell--depending on your rainfall expectations--but we are dealing with a drought now and in this pic you can see that in the grass and alleys of my potager.
A pic of when we bought the place so that you see the old barn roof:
We also excavated and terraced the land behind the house:
From above. Again, note the dryness, and that we sowed grass into subsoil. :-/ And yeah, it is a mess. My old washer even makes it in the photo because it decided to give up the ghost during the barn renovations. :P
Busy bees we've been. I guess i fibbed because that was pretty long....
