Three sad little beds on a plot of land scraped clean of all it's topsoil.....basically rocks and weeds.
That being said, the pathways between the beds basically still looked like the ground on the 2010 photo. And by the end of the summer, with even our most valiant efforts, the weeds overtake the paths and make traversing them a snaky feeling proposition. And weed eating threatens to destroy all of the plants spilling over from the beds.
So, last week "The Help" got to work.
Pathway before prepping the ground
Weeds and rocks removed.
Weed block paper in place. (This is where I helped.)
All compliments of "The Help"......proudly standing on their brand new pathways.....looking a little worse for the wear, but hey, it is so worth it.
What a great job!!! Thanks, guys. Now to finish the other half of the garden......just sayin'.
A garden's promise of summer bounty.
The rich smell of earth and mulch.
Chickens clucking happily in the background.
