This is how it has looked for the last few weeks. Just dirt and a butt load of leaves that we had to rake (I use the word we loosely cuz our friend that was helping us, Ruth, did most of the raking).
This after Ruth raked and after we manured the lawn and tilled it.
Our first couple rows.
Ruth cutting the curve.
The section out by the street with our little crepe myrtle tree.
The other side of the lawn.
So, my foray into the world of gardening isn't going as bad as I thought it would even though our grass is already struggling to stay green. All thanks to the help of good friends and one very green thumbed mother.
