The Garden Visited

For weeks now our focus has been to get the garden ready to plant. Moving in the fall and dealing with spring weather gave us quite a late start considering how much work needed to be done. We moved 38 tons of dirt and sand into the garden with wheelbarrows and rakes. The first photo is the last of the dirt which is about 8% of what we put in. The next photo is bags of compost (about 2 1/2 tons of that) waiting to be spread. After we spread the poop, we rototilled the whole area both ways . Ken loves to take pictures of me using the heavy equipment. Needless to say, we have been doing nothing but preparing the garden other than keeping up with the mowing and occasionally sleeping. And dreaming about the garden.

I can't wait to see how it's shaping up. I have a vested interest now. You know I wasn't even sore the next day when I got home... I was pretty sure I would be. None the worse for the wear. Wish I could have done more. I hope you get enough rain this summer to make it all grow and that the critters don't nibble too much!
