Playground is complete. It was actually more of a challenge to build than I initially anticipated. We surrounded the play area with rubber recycled tire mulch, which is supposed to last 10+ years.
Veggies and herbs are continuing to grow nicely.
This is our "tropical" garden area.
This is our "Asian-inspired" garden area. I think both these areas will look much better when everything starts to grow in nicely.
Lydia really loves her new playground, especially the swing. The funny thing is, that was actually a swing we got when she was about 5 months old and hung from a tree, but it was not nearly as fun then as it is now, hanging from her playground area. I'm so happy she's happy! If this isn't pure toddler bliss, then I don't know what is.
