Garden Preparation Continues

In between the cool rainy days and early warm days we have been actively been preparing the garden spot. This weekend we began tilling the areas that we are going to plant, removing grass and roots from the tilled areas and moving rogue flower bulbs that have popped up as it gets warmer. This week I am hoping to add compost to the rows, add a couple of logs to terrace the areas that slop down hill to help keep the soil from washing out, and add some organic fertilizer to the rows. Our seedlings are growing beautifully. So far in the last couple of weeks we have planted onions, lettuce, green beans, yellow wax beans, tomato, cucumber, eggplant, lots of herbs, sunflowers, Shasta daisies, spinach, and sweet peppers. I am hoping to plant something each week until there is no more room this year. I would really like to create landscape gardens and integrate the decorative plants and the edibles to get the most out of our yard during each season.
