I'm trying to do something in the garden every day. Depending on the weather, this might include planting seedlings in the house; but let's face it, there's a lot of hard work to be done before the weather is warm enough to plant anything, and I won't get it done by being lazy.
So I'm trying to do something in the garden every day.
Since I've been using my garden cart a lot, one of the first things that needed to be done was to replace the flimsy plastic liner it came with. Needless to say, it was already full of holes.
So Don dropped the sides and measured the floor.
Then he cut me a sturdy piece of OSB to fit in the bottom of the cart. I loved the way this picture turned out; it so beautifully illustrates my wonderful husband.
He fit the cut board into the cart...
...and made it better than new.
Now I have no excuse to avoid trundling manure. Make that composted manure, from the compost pile. It's hard dirty work moving it, but the tire garden needs it.
Naturally the chickens assume I'm digging up all those lovely worms exclusively for their benefit.
The reason I'm moving so much manure is because the soil in last year's tires has settled, leaving the tires about half-full.
So I'm topping them with fresh compost.
This is after I weed everything, of course.
There are a lot of tires to top off, and I don't even have a fraction of the tires laid out that I want to fill.
How does the song go? Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow...
