Backyard garden work

Though our winter was relatively mild, the unusually wet and cold April put many of our gardening plans on hold. On Saturday and Sunday, the sun returned, so Sarah and I got to work on reducing our backyard lawn cover while increasing our garden space.

We uprooted heavy piles of sod, constructed an 8 x 25 ft cedar frame, and filled it with a gardening mix from southeast Portland.

We still have a long way to go in our grass removal project. We hope to have the lawn replaced by rocks, shrubs, and vegetables in a couple of years
