When we first laid our eyes on the farmhouse back in March, I had these ideas of making big gardens, a vegetable patch and a few planters…and just filling the whole place with all the lofty garden dreams from my Pinterest board.
Looking back, I’m sure it was just first homeowners excitement with a touch of naivety. The thought of having our own land, where I can get my hands dirty and make some things grow was just too much to rein back. The reality is that our property had been sorely neglected for a number of years, in part due to having tenants for so long. Much of our yard work has been cutting things back, pulling out invasive species and caring for what we want to keep.
Our hostas are looking ready to bloom soon too.
