Garden update!

I think the day after our garden was planted, we started dreaming about what to do with the rest of the yard. We planted the rescue tree our local nursery threw out & planted a row of purslane next to the fence.

We finished mulching around our three planter boxes and thought the yard needed a little something else.

Beach rocks!

There are millions washing up on the shores of San Diego and per the county parks website, you're allowed to take a few pounds at a time. So.... over a week... collect we did, and we began surrounding all of our plants with a (free) rock border.
