Photoshop photo merge before and afters!

Here's one of the north side. Not quite sure why it didn't mix in with the other ones.

Here's our raised bed veggie garden. I haven't done much vegetable gardening in the past so this year will be a lot of trial and error. We have onions, broccoli, lot of herbs, many varieties of tomatoes (including heirlooms), tons of peppers, 4 different varieties of lettuce and some green beans. I have set my expectations kind of low and we'll just see what happens... keep you posted.

The gates are the last thing to be done. We kind of anticipate that they will take a while since we have to design and execute them ourselves. We will have three gates all told.

As you can see, all the new plants are pretty small. We planted about 225 perennials total, which we got from the Friends School plant sale a few weeks ago. The plants were a lot less expensive because are smaller, which is fine because had we paid full price it might have bankrupted us. We will just have to be patient over the next few years and eventually it will all fill in.

Kind of working with a blank slate here. We don't have a overhead 'before' because i got that idea late in the game. You get the gist of what we were dealing with though.

So the garage looks like it leans a bit in this picture, but that's just the way photoshop had to make it to merge it.

OH MY GOODNESS. WOW! Can't wait to come and see it! Don't worry about your veggies. They are actually really easy to grow, provided they get lots of sunlight and enough water. You might consider a soaker hose so you don't have to kill yourself watering. (Maybe you already have)
