    Cool weather seeds are planted!

    This past week I dug up the easy part of my garden. I have three long beds. Two were clay so hard that I had to literally use a pick ax on some parts of them the first year I planted a garden. The third part had obviously been used for gardening by the previous owner because there was lots of sand added and it was much softer and easier to turn over. That part has the most shade as it is on the east side of a concrete block fence.

    I bought some bags of compost and dug that in, then smoothed the soil, made a little berm along the edge to make it easier to water, and planted
    • carrots
    • peas (two kinds)
    • onion sets
    • radishes
    • beets
    Hope certainly springs eternal. I've had very limited luck with all of the above in the past, but you know how it is--it just seems like this will be year for a banner garden!

    This week or this weekend I'll prepare the other two beds. My neighbor has some chicken manure I can have and I'll get some sand and more compost. Those amendments should help the fertility of my garden. Oh, and we are getting the Rototiller repaired. Everything looks good, but we can't get the thing to start. It should make the tilling part a lot easier if we use that.

    I am faithfully watering my planted beds, but nothing has come up yet. I feel like a little kid, rushing out each day to see if anything has sprouted yet!
