I took last year off and focused more on gardening other areas of our yard. This year, I decided to get serious. I cleared a larger section of the yard, rototilled the land, utilized local friends for llama compost, and of course built raised beds (complete with chicken wire to keep out any tempted gophers). At the end of the day, it was a larger task than I anticipated, but one I hope will pay off.

|We are also putting in fresh grass in the side yard, so that the kiddos can play while I garden.|
Gardening makes my heart happy. :) Well, as long as I don't get scary tomato worms eating my plants again. That makes me less happy and more grossed out.
