Gardens, gardens, gardens

Well Spring is finally upon us!

After several snows in the last month, the last April 15th, its been a scramble to get gardens finished in time for the growing season.  Now the temperatures have been in the 80s!

Here a Mandala garden we just finished before the rain came.  A Mandala garden incorporates several key hole beds in one growing space. They are also a striking visual!

More to come as this backyard oasis project continues to grow!

We also put in several raised beds in both the front and back yards in the last week.

At this house, we had a gentleman driving by, stop, ask a few questions and then say, "What you are doing is great, it's just great!"  Love it!

Also did some garden clean-up...

And built a giant raised bed using wood core, called a hugelkultur.  We have used wood cores before, but this was the real thing!  Read more about them at RichSoil.com

More to come on this project as well!
