Since we've owned our home - I've had really good intentions of growing our own vegetables each spring/summer. (Yes, I do realize that gardening isn't technically a craft - but it's working with your hands so I'm thinking it can count for now... stay with me!) Only problem is... well, there are actually a lot of problems!
We purchased our 1920's craftsman style home in the Fall of 2008. Everything was in really good shape for the age of the home, but the yard (both front and back) was a little (lot) bit of a disaster!
The backyard was a hot mess. Kind of jungle-like actually!
That same year I got a little crazy with starting seeds and trying to grow things. I think I had about 20 different types of vegetables and herbs growing. Not one plant survived. Seriously! Yikes.
This year marks the beginning of the front yard re-do. Here's what it looked like when we bought it...
