Showing a Garden Two Years Later.....

I married my husband in October 2011.  We were so out of shape hiking during our honeymoon, that we swore when we returned home, we would start working out.  We live on 15 acres with a quarter mile driveway.  While working out I really took notice of all the trash and debris left by the previous owner of the property.  When I say trash, car axels, abandoned mobile home, boat trailer...  I couldn't take it anymore so I asked for Christmas for it to be removed.  After removing the trash, I realized how beautiful the property could be so on January 2012 I began gardening.  Six months later, my in-laws came to visit.  They recently asked to return again.  Feverishly trying everything cleaned...I felt that my ambition waned.  I spoke to my mother and she said something that made me feel better.  I said I think it will be fine...I don't many private gardens with this size and breadth.  She said...neither do I.  I felt much better....and relaxed.

When they visited, this is what it looked like.

This was the field in 2012.  It was a vast improvement since there were huge clay piles here.

They had to FIL had a medical procedure that he would have been unwise to walk over a mile in 107 heat index...I hope he feels better soon...I think fall is the best time of year here.
