"Sue, when you laid your bark down, did you put down a weed barrier? I have a huge problem with crab grass and I've laid down weed barriers then added bark but it doesn't seem to help. It looks great!! BTW"

"Hi Sue, Did you move to the city? The other picutures you had goats and chickens. In these pictures I like what you have done on a small lot. The stones add alot of character and the raised beds make it look orderly and tidy. I do like your gardening style. Are you going to make a hoop house here or you don't need it since you are now in what I think is the perfect zone...6. Great job!"
