garden update

Not much to tell, really. We are way behind on getting the garden planted. We've been so busy lately we had to "schedule" it. Sara and Kevin are coming to visit later this month, so we are booking off from the rest of the world for a week or so. It'll be like a vacation for us and we can catch up on the fun stuff.

The garden got a couple of truckloads of sand put on top and just when we were shopping around for some topsoil to purchase we discovered that we already have all that we need. Our nephew told us to go look between the barns, under the grass, and sure enough ...... look at this beautiful stuff!Art brought a few bucketloads over to the new garden with the skid steer.But that's as far as we've gotten. We've decided, in the meantime, that rather than go to all that work and try to till up that difficult clay we will just make the whole thing a tire garden. There are so many advantages to doing it that way and the ones we've already planted on the other side are doing so darned well that we're thinking "why not stick with a good thing"? Besides, the way those blasted cows keep breaking through the fence, they'd just trample a normal garden and that'd be a tragedy. They don't seem to mess with the tires.

At the risk of sounding like a geek, I do have to say that that is some mighty fine looking dirt! It's beautiful and just what you need!
