|Things got packed pretty hard over the fall and winter.|
|And I thought that just turning it over was hard work!|
|Nearly half a wheelbarrow of roots, mostly from|
my neighbor's Elm trees.
Time then to spread out a couple of bags of processed cow manure and mix it in thoroughly. Makes for great tomatoes and veggies, not to mention a sore back.
With the garden beds all prepared, I then covered them up and repaired the fence to keep yard waste from accumulating and to keep a couple of big dogs out. Especially one Elwood who has a proven bad habit of stealing tomatoes and squash right off of the vine.
|It being only the end of February it would be foolish|
not to expect another round of cold weather.
A hard freeze, freezing rain or snow are all possible.
|The right bed is for tomatoes, about four varsities.|
|The left bed is for starting peppers, cucumbers,|
beans, squash and Mellon's.
Now all that remains is the waiting for the seeds, that have already been ordered to arrive, so the planting can begin! Here's hoping for a long and healthy growing season and a rich and bountiful harvest.
