Tackle It Tuesday - Fall Garden
Okay, I don't turn my garden over because I use the excuse that I don't have a tiller. Sad. Today I decided to begin working on my garden. The fact is, the more stuff you can get under the garden for the winter, the better. That plant material then breaks down into important nutrients that your garden needs in the spring.
Here's my garden, all covered with weeds and junk. It got really bad because I ran out of time to weed. I baby sat a child who is not one of those little boys who plays by himself. He was always into trouble so putting him in the fenced backyard while I weeded garden on the other side of the gate didn't work.
This is the bit of garden soil I turned over in 45 minutes using a shovel. The soil is soft right now and easy to dig. It'll take me many days to get it done, but get it done I will. I'm hoping for a phenomenal garden next summer.
