Some Garden Cleanup b4 & aft pics

crystabel(9)June 18, 2009

Well I really let my garden get out of control over the last few months. I kept the boxes cleaned up, but the pathways got completely overrun with weeds.

However, I was out working the past few weeks and got it nice and cleaned up! Doesn't it look so much more neat and clean?! (well, the after pic that is LOL)


That area with the white trellis is just filled with dead leaves that I removed from the area. Each handful was teaming with earthworms. Next to that are my compost bins and worm bin. And that purple curtained area is where my peppers are. They needed some shade, and now that I hung the sheers over them they are actually holding onto the peppers instead of dropping them off after a day. Hurray! :)

Looking good. Are those homemade compost tumblers?

Hmm, wonder why the pics didn't show for some of you. Well, you can check it out at my garden blog if they don't show here...

gmreeves - yep, my husband made me those out of trashcans. He bolted the lids down, put holes in the ends and put a rod through the middle, then built the stands for them to sit on.

Well, that's what I get for trying to link to blogger I guess. Here's the pics again, but from PhotoBucket which I know comes across well.

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing the difference a little bit of mulch can make?
