This is my Spearmint/ Peppermint bed "before".
Step #1 was to weed-eat.
~ Here's our daughter doing the Spearmint side of the bed now.
You can see the Comfrey in the middle by the cement bench.
My husband and I are in our 50's now, our garden help is leaving the nest. So when I saw the Back to Eden movie it resonated with me as what we needed to start doing in our garden. I shared this with my husband and even suggested we go and look at Paul Gautschi gardens in Sequim, WA about 2 hours away from us. He encouraged me to just start the transformation because of the information that I shared with him. ~ You just gotta love a trusting man!
Now here we are with 2 piles of wood chips that we are hauling into the gardens.
Here's our first of the raised beds that we are doing. See the Kale that was planted last fall, ready to harvest soon.
