I think every muscle hurts from digging trees, pulling trees, pulling weeds, digging out unwanted plants and vines. But, the area where the new retaining wall is going is now cleared so they can get to it. The wild trees everywhere are gone (except the ones I undoubtedly missed), and the honeysuckle vine blocking my back stairs is also gone! Yay! I hacked and whacked until that thing was out of there, now all I have to do is figure out how to get the rebar that was supporting it out of the ground (aka honey do list).
The honeysuckle used to block the entrance to these stairs.
Another "before" pic of the retaining wall disaster.
My cleaned up shade garden, it still looks busy, hard to get a good pic in the dappled shade.
Vegetable garden looks pretty good, we got 2.5" of rain last night that we sorely needed. I'm experimenting having the peas grow on the hog panel arch with wire.
Corn is being nibbled on by a critter, not sure how much I'll actually get this year.
Only 2 squash plants came up, guess I'll have to be happy with that. Tomatoes in the background.
Tomatoes and peppers always do well.
Beans are looking good this year, now that it's fenced.

Oh, ow! Your poor back, I need to stop complaining about mine immediately! Pulling weeds seem nothing compared to this! Pour yourself a gin and tonic immediately!
That existing retaining wall looks dangerous!! I'm glad you managed to clear the trees and honeysuckle and I can, almost, feel your pain. Thank goodness the wall didn't collapse altogether while you were working in that area!!
I had very few squash germinate this year too. I ended up buying a few plants at the greenhouse.
Wow! What a job, PL! That is a whole lot of work. I hope you can rest up and give your back a chance to recover. good luck with that retaining wall. It does look intimidating.
Wow you guys have been super busy. It all looks great.
