At the end of March, I decided to take a week off of work so that I could focus on getting our backyard ready for growing vegetables, to include designating space for a chicken coop with run.
Time was of the essence! There was so much work to be done, and although I had a week to do it, it felt like so little time. I wanted to get started right away, on Monday morning, so that I wouldn't turn around, find out that it was already time to go back to work, and lament all the time I had wasted.
Before I chronicle what happened in that whirlwind of a week, I should show you a Before photo:
The first thing we had to do was cut down that beautiful, blossoming plum tree.
