We have put a new sand box around our trees in our front yard. I think it's a nice combination of functionality and esthetics.
Not to mention Ethan loves it!
Here is the view before & after.
We are also experimenting with a vegetable garden right in front of our patio. Yes, a vegetable garden in the front yard! You say, Why? I say, Why not!?
Some beautiful Chard!
We're also growing 4 different kinds of tomatoes, 2 different kinds of sweet peppers, jalapenos, and habaneros! MMMmm can't wait to start cooking with them!
