(From 2007) Philly Backyard, Looking Out 5 [final]

Back in 2007 when I was living in the first floor of a 2BR apartment bordering West Philadelphia, I spent the spring transforming the backyard from the below wasteland, to the garden above. Tiny budget, and just my two hands with which to do so.

It took about $200 and several hundred hours of labor (i.e., me moving dirt from one of the yard to the other), but afterwards my roommate and I were able to throw vegetarian barbecues back there. And thus began a short-lived series of "Bring Your Own Vegetables" veggie grilling parties...and the name of this blog.

Iris- thanks for stopping by Jaybird! I love your blog name and especially love your header. When I was a kid, my brother was in Boy Scouts and participated in the Pinewood Derby (homemade wooden car race). They had an open division for family members, so my dad helped me build a car shaped like a carrot with a tiny mouse driver! Seeing your header brought back such great memories. Can't wait to read more of your blog.
