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
