So yesterday after we finished at the pumpkin patch, I borrowed my sister’s truck and went up and got a load of manure to put on the garden. There is a guy north of here with a horse farm who will give you free manure and he’ll even load it himself with his tractor!
The colors of the leaves are beginning to turn. Across the street, my neighbor already has quite a few leaves fallen onto his lawn. I think I’ll tell him he can give them to me instead of taking them to the trash. If I have energy I might even go over there with the leaf vacuum once there’s enough accumulated and just shred them all myself. It’ll be good exercise.
The garden is underway! Last night I spent a lot of time pulling off tape from all the accumulated boxes in the basement. I stacked them up out on the porch and this morning after Little Rambo went down for her nap, Ballerina Girl and I went outside to work in the garden 🙂
So it begins. I finally finished building my garden boxes the other day and also got my starter garlic in the mail. I bought a half pound of Inchelium Red and Music Pink. I’ll probably be buying other types as we go along but I plan on saving bulbs from the results of this planting and thus continuing these lines. Hence, the beginning.
