Remember when we just moved in and loved a feature of our yard. Or we added some new component to our landscape. Take the time to remember what it was that made you fall in love with your property. Then look to see if it still reflects the magic that it once held. Sometimes it is the little things like neglecting a favorite tree and our surprise to notice it has outgrown its spot. Or favorite flowers that we looked forward to every year but no longer show because the weeds have taken over.
Jeff and I made a commitment this summer to spend one evening a week in our vegetable garden. This year, that little extra bit of effort (and great weather) has contributed to our healthiest, most prolific garden ever.
