Big Garden Project for 2008

This is the before photo of our beautiful double wide driveway.

We decided we really didn't need this much non-permeable surface in the yard. And we do need more dirt for more plants, so...

All busted up, ready to be used for stepping stones.

This what it looked like after I turned the dirt a little, dirt that has been under cement for about 30 years. I added some straw and coffee grounds and compost. I'll seed it with fava beans, and buckwheat, as a cover crop, which I'll turn under as green manure.

And just like that, about 130 additional square feet of dirt becomes available for plants.
