1/8 sec shutter speed is to slow to hand hold, thus it kills your sharpness. At your chosen focal length you'd want about 1/25 minimum, but that's even pushing it for many people; around 1/60 is better. To get that you need about three stops more light so you could either bump the ISO to 800 and keep your same Depth of Field, or you could open up the aperture to around 5.6 or so and sacrife some DOF for better file quality. Your choice as to qhich option is better.

The biggest problem is that that isn't a picture of your backyard, but a picture of your sunporch with the yard visible through the windows. Your settings considerations ahould be based on thinking you're indoors for that shot, not outdoors.
