I'm going to try using the area I expanded again (in the foreground with straw on it to kill the weeds) for big stuff like squash and pumpkins.
Some of the landscaping that my friend, JoAnn, did for us last summer. I can't wait to fill it in more with plants. But they have to be somewhat hardy to take a beating from the boys running through it and balls bouncing around and the Cody dog tearing around the place. Any ideas on hardy "kid-proof" flowers or bushes? Maybe just a bunch of rocks and small boulders?!?!
