Gardening


We spent some time on Saturday helping our Lady in the garden while the man was trying to fix the lawn mower. Our Lady does not have a green thumb, but she is going to try this out. We think with our help she will do great.

We thought we would give you a tour of our backyard. We don't go there much. The pictures of us playing outside are usually in the front yard.


 Here is Lee checking out the hill behind garden. The Lady has planted 2 tomatoes, 2 strawberries, 2 cabbages and 2 red peppers. This will probably be it for this year. We want to see if she can keep those alive!

Here is the back of the house. The people are so excited that they will be staining that 69 foot deck soon. The part that is wider is off the dining room.



Note: The picture from Sunday's post was taken just after this one. Phody was so happy because he and Hailey got to wrestle and he thinks he won.


Our house has 2 garages. There is one to the side of the house and this one in the basement. If you look at the picture above this is between the 2 pillars on the far right of the shot. It is also messy. There are empty boxes from our move, the Christmas decorations, the patio furniture, which the people don't want to put up until they get the staining done and the wood for our fireplace (this enters on to the living room too so good location for the wood!)




This is some of the trees behind our place.  You can see the hill is steep and why we don't play back here as much. 



If you are standing behind the house facing it this is on the right. it is the septic field. Our Lady has done a great job at growing dandelions here! Here dream is to put a low maintenance flower garden here eventually. She may pick up a few plants to get this started as the spring goes on. 
You can see our Man's car peaking out on the left. He was parked in the driveway, hoping it would rains and clean his car!


 This is to the left of the house. Here Phod is looking to see if the grass the Man planted has started to grow. We aren't allowed to play on this right now.


Thanks for coming on our tour with us! Have a great day.

  3. We agree with Mollie it is more like a park. Lucky you we just have a postage stamp sized garden but we are lucky as we live a few houses off the park. Hope you veggies do well. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Lots of running around room! We'd be in those woods sniffing like mad. We think you're garden will grow well. SHE put a couple of tomato plants in containers and they grew and SHE definitely doesn't have a green thumb! You could have had a bigger garden if she let you two dig...BOL!

  9. Wow, you have one huge yard. I bet the pups have a great time romping around in there. Here in Toronto, space is very scarce, so all the yards are teensie weensie.

    We planted a few vegetables and herbs too. Hopefully it turns out for the both of us! :)

  14. Beautiful! It looks like you live in an alpine forest! We bet you get lots of birds and maybe butterflies. Our Mom LOVES your big deck. Purrs...

  15. It looks lovely! I've never seen plants done in wooden pallets before, that's a pretty cool idea though. The tomatoes can get a bit tall and usually need one of those wire cage things to hold them up as they get big, good luck! I also worked in the garden this weekend and hope to share a "tour" soon :)
