this is the small patch between the large tree and fence, before i cleared it out. all ivy and thorns, over gravel. with one peony and a bunch of daylilies.
this is the patch after clearing. i planted tomatoes (yellow, orange, red, mini & big) and eggplant. i didn't get rid of all the gravel because that would be a LOT of work. i'm going to slowly get rid of it. by next year, i'll have a better bed.
this is the patch today! the tomatoes are doing well, there is a green one already on the large plant in the corner : )
