Growing a garden

We're finally settling in to our new home, and now that I can catch my breath, I've been planning our gardens. Since it's late summer, there isn't time to make as much progress as I'd like, but we can at least set the framework for spring. 

Two of my favorites are in the ground--lavender and yarrow. I'm still new at gardening, and am not too familiar with the soil yet, but I'm hoping for big lavender cuttings next summer!

This is a small patch in front of our house that was bright green grass a week ago! Chuck is killing it off and plans on digging it up soon so we can turn the whole area into a garden.

We're making progress!
