That's the backyard veggie garden. I know it doesn't look like much now, but in a couple of months it will hopefully be a garden of Eden, minus the snake.
That's the front yard. I have no real strategy for the yard, except I don't want lawn or to have to water a lot. I also like to mix flowers and shrubs and vegetables together, like the artichoke and rhubarb that are in amongst the roses and euphorbia.
This is the other side of the front yard, which was kind of scrubby before my parents helped me plant lots of wonderful new things. I get kind of impatient; I want things to grow NOW.
