Hi everyone! I'm a librarian by trade and my husband is a guitarist and together we have set out to transform our boring Minnesota suburban yard into an edible garden paradise. I'm putting together pics and info to start this blog in earnest soon. In the meantime, please post any questions you'd like me to answer in the comment section below!
Here's some pics of the transformation we've done in one part of our yard:
The only shot I have of how this part of our yard looked when we first moved in is snow-covered so here's a comparison shot of that with how it looks today (Changes to note: we took out the chain link fence and added cedar fencing, build a grape arbor, a fountain, a compost bin and replanted a large bush from another part of our yard into this corner):
Here's the before and after of creating the main vegetable garden. (In the top photo you can see the tiny raised bed that was our first garden attempt in 2011.)
Some shots of the garden "in action" this past summer.
