This weekend, there was a lot of activity in my backyard. Hubby built five more raised garden beds....and cut down some trees (Manitoba Maple) to allow the sun to reach the gardens. While I hated to see the trees go, I understand that Manitoba Maple can pose some problems for the homeowner as they are often hollow inside and can break in a high wind...
We did some shopping this afternoon and came home with some more strawberry plants, and two Raspberry bushes.
We have replaced the trees we cut with this little gem...a Bing Cherry tree to keep our other cherry tree company.
Our little backyard is becoming a productive half acre or so. I look forward to the day when I have to go no further than my backyard for fresh produce. Our neighbours voiced the same sentiment yesterday! I think my next purchase will be a motion detector!
