Garden Plans- Before and Hopefully Ever After

For as long as I can remember I have want a back yard where I could grow food, play guitar and drink beer. I’ve lived in some pretty cool places, but I have never had the back yard I have been jonesing for. When Becky and I moved into our current digs in Brooklyn last summer, we checked out the back area with mixed emotions. ┬áIt gets a ton of sun, has plenty of space to grow food, yet it also has a non-connected kitchen sink, some mattress frames, scrap metal, cinder blocks, basketballs, and a bunch of ladders used as fences. I started dreaming up some possibilities for what it could look like if our VERY kind and generous landlord agrees to let us have at it. Here are the plans, before on the left, and hopefully ever after on the right. You can see that we are going to have our work cut out for us. Wish us luck!
