We have been making major changes in our backyard this week! We officially decided we wanted to expand our corral and keep our 2 heifers for breeding. We will also be putting in some feed pasture. We also made plans to expand my garden and put in some fruit trees. In all my excitement I forgot a before picture, but I found an older one that shows most of the yard we are working on.

Just off the right side of the picture is where my garden was.
We have now torn down the garden gate and moved my raised boxes and brought in loads of compost to fill in where the pasture will go. We will be starting the fence tonight. I will keep you all updated!

We are getting rained on today, so we aren't doing much outside. But we officially have all the fencing up! The cows are loving their doubled corral. And soon we will be expanding their shelter. We still have a lot of dirt to move around. All the garden boxes are ready to go and we put rock around them to help prevent walking in mud. All my fruit trees are in (they are hard to see in the picture). I choose a peach, a pear, and an apple tree. I also dug holes for 2 more rhubarb plants. Still so much work left, but I am very happy with how it's coming along!

We repurposed our old cattle fencing and t-posts as my new archway/ trellis. I only have one box done and need to do another half a box. I can not wait for later in the summer when it's full and beautiful!


You can also see my sweet calves enjoying their new space. They love being up by me when I am working in the garden.

Thank you Karen!

Oh Judith, I am! It's getting so exciting. My peas are the first to start climbing.

Grace, that is what also makes me so excited. I hope I can have lots of canned goodies this year.

Denise, it's my dream. Each year I am able to get a little closer.

My second trellis is up and I also made a 2'x 2' square box to put my mint in. I just need the dirt and I will get my mint put in!

Good idea to contain that mint. It spreads like wildfire. We can't seem to get rid of the stuff that was here when we moved in. It took over a whole flower bed.

JUdith, I do have my mint box away from most of the garden. I decided to put it by the trees.

Denise, we are having that problem with morning glory this year. It's extremely frustrating. It's in the side flower garden.

Thank you, Rea.

I agree, Nancy. I still have so much to do. I look forward to when it's all complete.

My beautiful new rose has bloomed! I love how beautiful the orange is. Auntie MJ shared her Rosie The Riveter rose a couple years ago and I knew I needed one! I'm so happy to finally have one!
