This is the giant shrubbery that I am in the (very slow) process of removing, to replace with much nicer things... like lavender, strawberries, roses, rosemary, and flowering bulbs.
Phase one! (chives, oregano, potatos in a pot, strawberries, lavender, pink daffodil bulbs)
Some onions are actually growing!
Flowers are coming back nicely, along with some chard.
Peppers! (these were a $.50 plant)
More peppers! (also 50 cents- all my expensive pepper plants were unsuccessful. Guess I won't be doing that again!)
