- Willy Wonka (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory)
So, some of you have been wondering when I was going to ACTUALLY do something to the ground i speak of. Well here is proof that I actually am a real person, and I plan on forcing the earth to do my bidding and grow me some tasty foods! This is where we started Saturday
After all the hard work, and a couple hours, we got the whole of the garden ready to plant. All that's left now is to add the actual fertilizer to the bed, and plant. In the mean time it's good to let the soil rest and to water it a couple time this week to aid in the breakdown of the alfalfa pellets. I declare this Weekend to be a great success!
We dug up around the roots and had to sever the larger of the roots to free the root ball. we wound up using a simple machine, a log and two by four to lever it out of its hole. That thing weighed a ton, but made us very happy to be rid of it! One Problem we did run into was our shovels were cracking under the stress we were putting them under. A much better shovel like this one would have helped!
Thx all for reading! and tune in next time to see what else will happen in the great world of gardening!
