Vegetable Garden time!

As y’all can tell I enlarged the garden this year.  The way I figure it is there’s less to mow that way! It’s about 20′ X 70′. I also used landscape fabric to help with the weeds and help retain moisture. Loads of chicken poop went in before the tilling. But I don’t think I used enough for the plot.

I kinda got over excited when the Tractor Dude came with his behemoth. Even though I was a bit scared he would unearth something I didn’t want to see. This is a very rural area and we have found weird things buried here and there.  We still can’t find our septic! So when he hit one low area and a shirt pants and pair of shoes came up wrapped in a roll of carpet, I really freaked! It turned out to be a pile of clothing wrapped in a roll of carpet. Who does that?? seriously? I don’t want this outfit any longer so I’m gonna bury it in a carpet in the side yard?

I’ve still got some work to do to build a compost pile. My mom has come over to help with the clearing and such. It’s actually been a treat having her there to tell stories and talk while we work. She is NOT used to manual labor at all. But even she is getting excited about having a garden. So far we have corn, the 1st batch of cucumbers , green beans, strawberries, tomatoes and green peppers, watermelon, zucchini, radishes and lettuce… I still have to get some okra seeds. I’m planting in steps so I’ve still got a way to go.

Today we’re laying tile in the upstairs bathroom (I know that still isn’t finished?). Guess what, the tile is laid and I’m off to grout!! Aren’t you impressed? Of course I didn’t get this posted yesterday cuz I wasn’t waiting to upload the pictures.. so tomorrow you’ll see the tile finished!

 This is meant to be my year for finishing projects. No new projects until all the old ones are finished! Hey, a girl can dream!
