Watching the Garden Grow

I’m just about done with planting my garden. It’s taken awhile….the dirt was hard and full of weeds, not having been tilled for a couple of years. It’s amazing what a bit of peat, loam, manure and muscle power can do. Now let’s see if it actually yields food. I chose simple things that are usually forgiving of poor soil: potatoes, turnips, carrots, peas, green beans, lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, broccoli, radishes and herbs. Here are some before and after shots.
