Gardening weekend

It’s been a busy weekend.  I’ve been working a few hours each day on weedsville.  It’s going really nice, and I’m ending today with a trip to the store to pick up rocks and more weed mats.  I’m really satisfied with how things are going, even if I had a few “what the heck am I doing?” moments.  This week I’ll work on getting the weed fabric down, along with cardboard (need double protection, those weeds are evil.) and spreading stone and gravel.  I plan on putting some sunflowers along the edge too, and getting the pond liner in, and the pond set up.  Ah, so excited!  And hopefully by the end of the week, putting my vegetables in the ground too.  It’s going to be one busy week!

I marked it of with a cord.  I didn't want square or circle, but more of a natural shape.

I roped the husband into doing some shoveling for me.  Actually, he was a sweetheart and volunteered.

We had to stop because this was rolling in.  It was a pretty nasty storm too- winds, hail, lightning, downpours...

Smoothed out all the dirt I dug up to even out the ground.  Start to put down weed fabric but realized I didn't have enough. Trip to the garden center!

Pond is dug, and even.  Doesn't really look like much now, but soon...
