Gardening To Do List

Ok, so if I'm being honest, I have a lot of work to do in my yard in order for it to be as dreamy as I would like.  In an ideal world, all the wonderful pins that I see on pinterest would be fast, easy, cheap, and really work.

This is Wonderful.  Not really what I am going for, because I still need to have room for my boys to throw a football, but there are pieces of this I would like to incorporate into my yard, and it's a great photo to dream on.

When spring finally arrives here in Nebraska, I am going to document all of the gardening ideas I find on Pinterest and will let you know which ones are hits and which ones are total misses.

This is what my yard looks like today.

Papillion, Nebraska, March 2014

I know that some of the gardening tips might even be a miss in Nebraska, but ultimately work for you elsewhere.  For instance, my back yard is right next to a dry wooded river bed.  It is beautiful in the summer, but it gets very overgrown and all kinds of animal life call it home.  It makes it hard to plant and grow things when every time I turn my back something is digging or eating my harvest.

An example is one that I blogged about earlier.

Adding an egg to my holes before I planted Grapevines Was a Miss
The Varmints Dug up the vines, tore them apart and ate the Egg 

The Varmints Also Ate The Banana Peel I Put in the Hole

It's Going to Be Miracle Grow For me From Now On

So in a nutshell, this is the plan....

Wish Me luck:)
