One of my must-haves in my home search was a good spot for a vegetable garden. The south side of my lot has a good bit of sun exposure, so I marked out the 5' by 18' spot last weekend with the help of my friend, Andrea. She's going to help me with the garden and reap the benefits of what we hope will be a bountiful harvest!
We started with a dose of Roundup to kill off the grass and weeds. A few days later, I spread chicken manure. It wasn't as smelly as I expected, though I was glad to be using it in cool weather. Today, I added a few egg shells and started to turn the land over. I got about 1/4 of the space done in an hour and called it quits for then.
Andrea and I have our first crop of veggie plants picked out. I can't wait to get planting!
