Progress on the Backyard

We’ve been working on the backyard, slowly making progress.

Backyard with moss on the ground, deck, and plenty of trees
The backyard, before we started.

Before we started, the backyard had a ton of leaves toward the back. and many small trees, bunched together. This made for a mess, and rendered much of the yard unusable. So we’ve cleared out the leaves and small trees, making way for a garden. We’re planning to have a few apple trees, strawberries, blueberries, pumpkins, potatoes and more.

The next big projects, beside slowly planting the garden, is to eradicate the English ivy along the fence line and replace the fence. We’ve taken out about half the ivy so far. What a job! Slow and steady, but it’s starting to look good.
