Our Garden Adventure - 02

We finished moving all of the wood chips from the empty lot to the backyard. Last night, we sent an email to our neighborhood asking for all old newspapers. Some generous neighbors got the collection process off to a good start! We used some of the newspapers in the front flower beds and around the river birch in the front yard. The rest of the papers will be used in the backyard for the garden.

Here's a look at the planned garden area. We're increasing our garden size from 80 square feet to about 600 square feet!

The area that has been mowed is the planned garden expansion area.

Our current 8x10 raised bed garden has red peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, green peas, and mint.

The wood chips in the backyard.

That's a lot of wood chips! And I have a sneaky feeling that it's not enough!
