Finally! A Start On My Garden!
Last night I got some seeds started in trays. I planted artichokes, tomatoes, peppers and amaranth.
I also worked on the garden bed around my fish pond. I planted two blueberry and two blackberry bushes. I got it all mulched in with some stale chicken poo.
After I got it all watered in, my dogs promptly raced through the mud, arced around the yard and into the house. My wife was not amused.
I topped it all off with a couple of bags of leaves. The area I planted them in is a raised bed, bordered by logs collected around the neighborhood. A few years back I filled it in with lot's of tree trimmings and covered it in soil from a hole dug elsewhere in the yard. It's now very friable. It's come a long way from the hard sandy clay that makes up most of my yard.
In that area, I'll later add in artichokes, rosemary bushes and sunflowers. I promise to post pictures at a later date.
