Digging up the yard

Spring has un-officaly sprung here in MN.
Its still April and everyone is itching to get outside and play in the dirt.
Luckly my dafodils are coming up and keeping my "got to put things in the ground NOW" sensation at bay.

I was able to gather enough for a nice vase to have sitting on the dinner table. Not that we really use the dinner table, but its nice to have flowers inside all the same.
It also aloud for some LensBaby practice shots.
The top 2 photographs were taken using the Muse lens.
It isn't my favorite lens but it was fun to play with

HT and I took some time off this week to go to a friend's wedding reception and to get some work done around the house.
Mostly around the backyard.

We have been planing on making some more planter boxes, amending the soil and attempting the Square Foot garden technique. So far we have the boxes made.

With the help of our good buddy Unger (the one with the tattoos and shorts).
We also have the boxes placed. Now we just have to lay down some edging, lay down some fabric in the paths, get some rubber mulch to have in the paths, get the boxes full of soil/compost/peat moss and then plant some stuff.

I'd say we did a pretty good job. And we only lost a few of the raspberry bushes in the process.

I was thinking about reviewing The Square Foot garden for you all this month. I may still. Though that means that I have to sit down and read it.

But for now, we are all just going to stretch out with pain killers and hot packs. Here's to hoping that the plan works out in the end.
