First day of work in the garden

Garden prep

Today I started work in the main garden. I tackled the crop circle yesterday (post coming soon!). This work involved uncovering the garden, which has been tarped over all winter. Once exposed, I brought in many, many wheelbarrow loads of chicken compost, which we’ve been composting for a year … You can see the bright green ground nearest the camera – that is an area where I ran out of black visqueen and used clear plastic. Nope, that didn’t work very well …

NOTE: I no longer cover the gardens with visqueen and do not recommend it. It does help keep the weeds down but is not good for the soil.
