When you buy over $200 worth of seeds . . .
. . . you plant over $200 worth of seeds. And when your soil is rocky you do most of your digging with a pick axe. That's what I've been up to. Racing one bed at a time. Mind you, some of my beds are raised and filled with imported soil, just not all of them. This doesn't even bring into discussion all of the bareroot trees we had to get into the ground before summer drought season. So I'm entrenched in a garden battle.
I'd like to appologize to readers for the lack of continuity on this blog.
Ericswan had an interesting comment on my previous post about the health properties of a common garden weed -- chickweed. It is worth a read.
I'd also like to point readers over to The Easy Garden, which is a new forum for all things garden-related, aimed at helping new gardeners get themselves well-rooted. This is an off-shoot of The Backyard Chicken forum, which I highly recommend to anyone who raises poultry or is interested in learning about poultry husbandry.
I hope everyone's gardens are coming along! Let me know how yours is growing!
