Yesterday Donna (bless her heart) came over and roto-tilled the section in the back where the vegetable garden was/is to be. I meant to take a picture beforehand, of the rotting wood and the weeds, but didn't get to it. Instead I have the "after" pictures, of the new layout (in progress) and this Swiss Chard with its very appropriate cutworm collar.

So far I've almost tripled the veggie garden space I had before we moved. In the foreground of the picture above you can see the Compost Squash that I rescued from the Old Beds before they were tilled. We'll find out soon what it is.

I've also started a little garden spot in the back for NOD. She has a tomato, marigolds and a lavender right now, and soon will have some Cosmos and Nasturtiums.
