our garden is up and running! i'll post some pictures soon. we finished our front flower bed today too. including mulch. who knew mulch makes you feel grown up. i am on this mission of convincing michael to let us raise hens in our backyard. i've researched the city ordinances, now we just need to measure our proximity to neighbors. then i'll just have a little more convincing to do ; ) since we are renting this house, michael has found designs for portable chicken coops! i'm so excited, but i should probably just focus on my garden for now. definitely check out this little video though on the subject!
