Yard in Organic Garden Tour

Our current yard is going to be in the Organic Gardening Association's tour this Saturday, June 30th. Our house, plus another on our street, will be featured among several others. Come to visit us! I can take very little credit for the garden - it's all Tom's work. He tends it and my job is to love and admire it. ;-)

To join the tour, meet ab B-foods East around 8:30 am. The tour is from 9 - 3.
Here are a few photos for those who can't make it in person.

What's the rock for?

In alignment with one of our guiding principles, to build an earth-friendly home, we strive to use salvaged materials as much as possible. One example is the salvaged concrete chunks that we (well, Tom) rescued from an apartment complex in town that is being rehabbed. These limestone-looking chunks are being used as borders to terrace the slope in the north end of the lot.
