It seems like everything is on hold around here. Held hostage by the weather for the most part. We didn't properly put the gardens to bed last fall and so there is work that needs to be done on that front. When the weather cooperates we are trying to get things done. Mars has the plans in his head and although I really want to keep reminding him there are things that need to be planted now, I've learned to try and let him do his thing without too much harping on my part. The current push is on the row we will plant potato's in. It's got all manner of Bermuda grass in it and so we're digging as much of the roots out as possible. It's taking some time but there's nothing we can do about that. The main goal since starting the gardens has been to make it harder and harder for the grass to grow and making the soil better and better. It'll be a continuous fight but much more manageable in the long run This will be the third year we've had the garden. Every year the soil keeps looking better and better and we're finding more and more worms out there lending us a helping hand.
We got a pretty good rain here this weekend so now we'll have to wait till it's dried up enough to be able to get out there again. So it looks like I'll not be boring you to death just yet with the garden progress report.
