Workin' the Earth
Happy 40th Anniversary Earth Day! Today I was up to my elbows in soil and compost. I changed my mind about the final location of our garden, and started in, again. It's a s-l-o-w process because I'm ripping out grass and reusing it in another part of the yard, so I can't just till everything under...After I got an 8' x 6' bed all ready with the compost all mixed in, I just had to my tomato's to their new home (and you can see my raspberries along the fence line)! I'm bone tired, a little sunburned but very excited about being well on our way to growing a lot of our own food this summer!
On the other side of our hideous chain link fence I moved a few plants in from across our backyard, and added a little ornamental rock path and border with all the stones I've been picking out of the pea patch.
