A House on a Hill may finally be...

This space used to be a major slop to death into the woods! LOL Now it is a veggie garden (let's hope) so that we can pretend to be somewhat "Green" and grow our own fruits and veggies. Go Green! ( I have no idea what I am doing...) This is a look from the bottom of the hill during the process.
Finally after all of the blood, bruising and tears we are getting closer to a new backyard escape. My hubby Doug has been working his fingers to the bone trying to get a vegetable garden, and (flat) backyard put in.
You see... we live on a hill. Some of you are saying Oh how nice.! But what you don't know is, that after having 2 little active boys running around it gets hard keeping them from rolling down the hill every 5 minutes... (My mom warned us... but do young kids ever listen... usually, but we didn't this time.) Anyway, we are trying to make some play space for the kids to be able to play ball, swing, explore and just be kids. For us we put in a raised veggie garden with all the fixin's. This project seems to be an ongoing one at best but one thing is for sure is that we will enjoy this space for years to come.
Hope you have a wonderful Day. Thanks for stopping by hope to have more pictures as the project progresses.
Love, Dana

Wow, what a difference. You guys have worked so hard on your project and from the looks of it you have been successful. What a treat your newly transformed space will be for the kids. Everything looks really good. I can't wait to see it up close and personal later this week.
Love you,
