It's that time of year
Thanks to a visit from a friend, I was able to get our garden in yesterday. Well, we got everything in but the bell peppers; they didn't have any at the store. This is our third attempt at a garden spot. You would think that with 41 acres, it would be easy to find a garden spot. Unfortunately we live on rock and clay, and it is impossible to till the ground. Our ground is so hard, our septic tank is partially above ground. I had the brilliant idea to use the kids sandbox as a garden spot. It didn't have any sand in it anyway. We're doing it as a square foot garden. I love the organization of it. I'm hoping that it will get enough sun. And hopefully the critters will leave it alone since it is in the middle of our yard.
