New Garden Getting There

Looking good so far. Need to get the back half done, but working on it. 4ft rows with 3ft paths in between. You can tell the rows with compost mixed in and cover crop seeds on top. I thought the last rain would start them sprouting, but most didn't. Hopefully the next rain will start them germinating. James has been a trooper with it all. He went twice with me today and I got 3 ditches in the paths put in so we can get good drainage so my compost doesn't wash away or have big wash outs or something. James found lots of worms. Good for the ground and a good distraction for James. Poor worms though, most don't make after being manhandled by James. Oh well, seems like there are lots of them. Yeah!

Hello Cathy,
I couldn't figure out how to email you but I've been enjoying reading through your blog for quite a while now. I would like to tell you about a homesteading, emergency preparedness, and survival forum that I am a member of. I'm sure the people over there would love to hear from you!

Cathy said...

Thanks Lanna! Me too! I can't wait to start planting.

So... got a garden layout for the whole space yet? You know, the whole vicariously-through-you thing...
I'm still trying to figure out what I'm interplanting and squishing together to see what insanity I can grow here in my little space. :)

I've got the cold weather crops layed out, but that is about it. I need to get moving on it. LOL!
