Some pictures of our garden

We have just recently been doing a bit more work in the garden.  With the cooler weather, we are expanding our growing areas and modifying the general layout of the gardens.  Since reading Gaia’s Garden, we have been inspired to make the garden and chore aspects of the yard more convenient.  Since I am home all day, I spend quite a large amount of my time outside–either working in or enjoying the gardening areas.  As I stated a few posts ago, one of the layout problems was our too-far-away clothesline.  Since then, we have moved it permanently and added raised beds beneath the clothesline.  It’s a win-win situation!

The grass is gone...five raised beds in its place!

Spiral bed--always start a spiral from the inside!

    Your spiral beds are cool! – they might work well on a slope like mine.
