The kids and I spent about 45 minutes digging in the garden transferring old compost onto a plot where the chickens had been. This dirt was dark, rich and loose. I almost giggled because I grew up with red, hard, dry clay, and this dirt seems decadent. I wonder if spinach grown in extra rich soil becomes dessert spinach? AND, I received half my seeds today. I am itching to get started. Tomorrow.
And tomorrow I will show you my garden plan, seed selection, and this awesome little website that tells me what to do and when. So fun.
I am trying to garden again this year, and am very interested in what you have learned. I am still very new, and my dirt - very red.ReplyDelete
Chicken tractor...miracle worker! Although this dirt is amazing at baseline. Also manure. We have tons because of the goats, but any kind is good. Let me know what you try. You all are in eastern TN right?ReplyDelete
