Last year my husband and I bought our very first house with a huge backyard. The previous owner had tended the land very well and it was an empty canvas. At first, we started with a box garden experiment and had great results! This year, we took the lessons we learned from last year and created 4 boxes, 4′ x 10′ each. I’ve created this blog mainly to keep a diary of our efforts as well as a place to add resources, tips, and tricks for a great garden. To those who read this, I hope you enjoy our journey in the backyard.
