July 23

We made a garden.  And it was a lot of work, as I'm sure anyone whos made one knows.  We started around 1130 at T&G's house, where they have an abundant backyard waiting for us.  G and I went to the garden store picking up our starters, seeds and compost.  The boys went to the hardware store to pick up lumber.  After hours of tilling and weeding we finally produced something beautiful.  Our very own raised beds!

The soil that we dug up had been garden soil until about 3 years ago while the previous owner lived there.  To each bed we added 5lbs of mushroom compost which we mixed in well.  We left at 5, with all three beds filled with seeds or starts, now we wait and see!
