Removing wood chips from the new greenhouse addition

 
I keep standing at this angle and looking at just how big the greenhouse is now and what I am going to be able to do with it. In the spring it got very crowded with the huge citrus trees in there and all the seeding and bedding plants. I feel like Christmas Day came very early for me this year. I am blessed and thankful.
 
 
The area where the greenhouse addition {6 X 8'} is going was part of the Back to Eden garden, so very thick with wood chips. I am a bit surprised by the size of the pile of chips I raked up. It doesn't look like it in this picture but it is about 3 feet across and 1.5 feet tall. I had to leave it for now as the sun has set and it became too dark to work.
 

It will make the area much easier to finish the greenhouse assembly. Then I am going to see if the citrus trees can be planted there. It is only about 12 feet or so from the trunk of the willow tree.....you see the problem. I don't have to spell it out for you, do I. {smiley face} If the willow roots aren't too crazy and I can actually get them planted, I will top dress them with the thickest, most luscious layer of manure they could ask for.

 

Wood chips have been moved to the raspberry bed. This is so much nicer.

It is so exciting. As big a change as tearing out the whole lawn in two yards and creating the gardens.
