It's been a few years now, and so I'm slowly incorporating a few more goodies into the soil in this little back yard spot so that more and more things will grow, and less and less roots will be fought off.
My expanding vegetable list now includes chard, celery, and onions.
I chopped down some boxwood bushes (2nd photo) before we went out of town for the weekend just so the sprinklers could water my precious garden. They were beautiful bushes, but we are removing them at the end of the summer for a backyard redo project. Stay tuned.
Now in the front yard is this.
