The back yard is looking green, with near 80 degree weather and intermittent showers everything is growing.

this is what the yard looked liked before we moved in last year:

I think the grading somehow stimulated the weeds since its knee deep towards the back fence and sides. Ferocious weeds.

there is still much to do to get the property in shape but it will take time. I did get some peppers and tomatoes planted and want to get some artichoke plants.

I also took last years Halloween pumpkin and cut off the top, and put soil inside and watered leaving the seeds intact. Then later dh cut a circle from the bottom and planted the whole thing. I’m thinking the shell will naturally compost itself.

pumpkin I’m excited about it as I would love to grow a whole bunch of pumpkins and the vines are especially pretty and the blossoms edible.
