Wordless Wednesday- October long weekend 2014

The before shots.  The aim was to get the yard ready for concrete and also to build a great wall along the side fence.  We are concreting where the grass hasn't grown and the kids and dogs continually dig up the dirt!!

4 days, a whole skip bin of dirt and a lot of bloody hard work it was finished!!  All ready to be concreted.
My new planter box.
The kids were given a new project too thanks to their Grandparents.  Carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, pumpkin, corn, capsicum.  Also a "pizza plant" which the kids call basil!!  Plus some lavender and a couple of succulents for me!!

Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday.


  1. We want to build a high planter box along our back fence too when we get around to doing the backyard. Although considering how long the bathroom has taken, I'm not holding my breath that it'll happen anytime soon.

  2. So much work, but it will be so rewarding when it's finished! Bravo!~

  3. That planter box looks great. Well done!

  4. Well done, it's nice when you can get stuck in in the garden! We have some neglected planter boxes... they used to grow great tomatoes!

  5. Looking good and so great to get the kids growing their own stuff, mine have always really enjoyed getting involved.

  6. I love gardening and seeing what you can achieve. Though all that work must've worn everyone out.
