A Truly Simple Garden: The Beginning

There are questions that no ones asks.  Like, “why do I have a lawn?”  In my case it would be, “why do I have a front yard that used to have a lawn, but now has patchy brown grass, weeds, and mole hills, and why do I continue to put in my time, money and energy into it?”
