Playing in the Dirt

We've been spending our free time out in the yard playing in the dirt. It looks a lot better already. With a little more effort it'll look even better. And once we're all set up, future years will be very easy.

We built three raised garden beds for vegetable/flower gardens and also have been adding flower beds various places around the yard.

not something you need every day, but if you've gotta drill lots of holes, the power auger comes in quite handy.
