There they are: Spring 2012's first batch of seedlings for the garden. Why, you ask, are they on top of the kayak? Answer: Needed a flat spot, away from slugs and snails. It works great, at least until we want to go kayaking. This weekend we had a beautiful Saturday, and we decided to work in the garden.
The first step was to get it cleared and get the dirt loosened up. I dug a little section. Mr. Logistical did most of it. I need a lot of breaks, and I had the excuse that I needed to take pictures. Not sure he bought it. Anyway, he then added some minerals, gypsum and ammonium phosphate.
Next up: We added in compost. Amazing how all those potato and carrot peels, and other vegetable matter, break down.
Lastly, used the hoe to mix it all in. Lots of work, but we know it will soon be worth it!
