Wow, is our garden really only two years old? What a difference time has made. But you know, photos really don't show all the physical effort that went into a garden, do they? Like giving birth, I think I've managed to block out all the pain and labor it took to get here.
In 2008, this is what our pitiful, sun-baked yard looked like when we started to plan our garden.

It's been an incredibly busy year for us, and believe it or not, we really didn't get to garden as much as we'd hoped. But I promise you, we were very productive all the same.

The best thing about garden blogging is that I can go back in time and see how far we've come. LOVE IT. And if you are thinking about starting your first garden, be sure to take Before pictures! It's so worth it.
