My goal has been to have our garden in and started in the first week of April but almost every year something or someone (most often related to an adoption or adoption -linked trip) has backed up my plans. Some years it was purely the weather. THIS YEAR, with (sadly) no adoption trip to prevent gardening and no sloppy flooded garden to grimace over, we are on schedule!!! Charlie got everything tilled up so nicely, and then tilled again for me when rain made mud and the first hot days of spring (high 80's) made brick of the garden spaces before I could work seeds into the soil. Waving HI at Y'all is my veggie garden. Its about 20x30 and should be ample space for all I hope to produce this year. The fence panels and gate will go back up this week too to keep Aslan the Golden Retreiver and his many many tennis balls out.
This space below will be the corn patch. Its about the same size as the other garden plot,
Today I worked on the front flower beds while the veggie gardens were a bit muddy from a rain last night. Tomorrow I will have the rest of the seed IN the ground and the starter plants in their little seed pods and greenhouse box. .
