The wife and the in-laws went shopping for shrubs today and the father-in-law cleared the bed of weeds and planted the shrubs. I got to drive away the trash.
The end result is very nice. The problem we will face next summer is that we now have nowhere to plant potatoes, peas and carrots – something we have been very pleased with this year. I foresee work preparing a new vegetable garden in the spring next year.
