I'm sitting outside, borrowing the nice neighbor's Internet signal, and enjoying the balmy weather after the big storm we had. I thought I'd post some before and after pictures.

This set shows how I've taken back Mr. Groundhog's stolen diggs. I put down some Repel, which is supposed to keep groundhogs and other rodents away. We'll see.

This is the right side of my house. Doesn't it look better? The main problems here are ants and weeds.

This is the last picture of the night. I've lost my connection a few times and want to quit while I'm ahead. This side of my house was barren dirt for a year. The first picture shows it after all the topsoil and part of the Patch Master was put down. The second shows...grass! It's the first time I ever tried to grow grass from seed. It seems like all you have to do is add dirt and water.

I'll add more pictures another time. It takes me a long time to upload them to Blogger. That might have something to do with the connection speed I have now, 11.0 Mbps vs. the usual 54.0 Mbps. I don't know what that stands for, but I sound pretty knowledgeable, huh? I called my cable company this morning and complained about the pitiful service I've been getting. I was told I need to speak to a supervisor and they took my phone number so she could call me when she got in. No, she didn't call. The markings that were done on my and my neighbor's lawns on Friday have almost faded away. Can I say WAAAH :((?

Sorry about your internet problems. I enjoyed your before/after photos of your garden. I my self am a terrible gardener but I like to see what others do.

Great pics! Everything is looking really good. Cable companies suck! I feel your pain.

You did a wonderful job with your garden! Good luck with getting rid of the ground hog, the little stinker.
