Garden Work Already? : LUSENET : Countryside Friends : One Thread

Well folks, you might not believe it, but I've been out the last couple days tilling up the large garden space we have here. We didn't work it up last year so it's pretty tough in spots, but I'm getting the job done. My DW has provided some excellent fertilizer from her rabbitry and a couple pick-up loads of horse manure were added for good measure. I'll work all that in real good, then set up the raised "square foot" beds and get ready for planting. It's a lot of work, but I can already taste those vine-ripe tomatoes and that ice cold watermelon ~ YUM-YUM!

According to the weatherman, my efforts will be put on hold because of the rain we're supposed to get tonight, but there's plenty to keep me busy elsewhere! As soon as I get the website I'm working on put together there will be pictures of our farm and projects for everyone to view. You'll get to meet our extended family, too :8). I'll keep you posted!

Wow, Phil, I wish I could start working in the garden! I'm just starting to go over seed catalogs, I can't even start seedlings yet. I do think I'll add a bit to the main garden and put in a potato patch this year. I'm going to grow more herbs this year too.

I can't wait until I can get my hands dirty!
