The shovel has been brought back out for our next yard project. And of course, our muscles. Since we moved into this house we've debated on what we wanted to do with a couple "patio" areas in the yard. One has just seemed problematic from the start. The stones wouldn't sit right, so we were constantly tripping over them and falling down. So, we decided to make a change.

Please don't mind the dirt on the house, it really needs to be powerwashed! The stones were ripped out and stacked elsewhere, for some other ideas in the future. We turned all the soil over and about. Now it just needs some sun, and time.

I cannot wait to start putting down some good soil to plant another garden area here. The plants will probably be put in by winter. The boy has some ideas of his own, and we'll be doing lots of research at the library. I sense lots of mud in our future.

What a great idea. Something green & growing is much nicer than a do-nothing patio.
