It’s all in your head

Filed under: Dirt, OO, Work — Josh @ 4:29 am

You know what I mean. That garden…its all in your head right now. Tiller, lasagna layers, or shoveled up deep wide beds (my favorite)–whatever your preferred method. It’s there, its in your head.

You just have to get dirty.

You know what vegetables you eat–figure out how to grow them. Figure out what the vegetables you eat like to eat and FEED them so they can feed you.

It’s not too bad. The first garden I mean. Give it a whirl and you’ll be surprised at how it all comes together. Seeds are made to grow. Give them what they need–good dirt and sunlight–and they’ll grow and make you some food along the way.

Gardening Season Has Begun!

Filed under: Compost, Dirt, Seasons, Seeds, supplies — Josh @ 5:01 pm

I mean, unless you feel like it never ended.

It was a balmy 35 degrees yesterday and I screened out a batch of finished compost for the winter pansies and moved another compost bin to the garden area. I’ve decided this year to put my compost set up IN the garden instead of out back. This way the nutrients that leach out of the compost will at least stay in the garden. It’s been really cold lately but the spinach I planted back in September or so seems to be doing quite well. At least its not freezing.

I bought some of my start up stuff yesterday and some more seeds.

I’m tickled.
