My current garden in in various stages from containers to seedlings. However, my latest project is a major expansion.
I started with half dead and thirsty grass...
And I dug a hole...
Then I added dead leaves and buried them for compost.
THAT was all last week!!! I was pretty sore from all the raking and digging so I decided to take a break.
Yesterday I picked up where I left off.
I dug a 4 foot x 4 foot hole that is almost a foot deep. I am calling this Phase 2.
I am sore this morning but I feel GOOD!!
I'm still not completely sure what type of garden style I will choose. I might just use 3 methods: containers, in-ground and raised bed.
Today I'll cover my dirt mound (compost heap) with a sheet of thick plastic so that everything will decompose faster. This way, when I'm ready to plant in 2 weeks I have nice fertile soil to use without having to purchase much from the garden store.
