It's been awhile since I did an update so thought I would do one today :)
We have adopted a dog from the local animal shelter (will be blogging about that more too). Here is my son, David, introducing Layla to our back yard. You can see the raised bed gardens are a bit overgrown.
Speaking of the raised beds, I think they worked pretty good! The main bonus, less weeding!
We had a great crop of tomatoes, lima's and green beans.
We canned a lot of the tomatoes and ate everything else. Here is a pot of the last green beans we picked. I planted three kinds of beans and meant to track which did best. I totally forgot and so we had an assortment of beans each time. They were all yummy!
Here is a cool picture of some of my hardscaping. A neighbor gave me this old bike - two flat tires, no brakes but the frame was still good. I 'planted' it in the side yard and planted morning glories by the tires. They only came up around the front of the bike but they look so cool!
Here's Lalya chilling out in the yard with her Kong. These are cool toys you can fill with snacks or peanut butter, they can chew on the toy and try to get the snacks out. Great way to keep the puppy entertained while we are out of the house.
Well that's about all my excitement. Catch up with you again soon! Thanks for reading!
