Garden of 2013
Hmm... a blog... never done one of these before. I've always worked in the garden at my grandparents house, right next door to my house as long as I can remember... now I am living at grandmas house and taking on more and more of the responsibility of the garden. This is going to be the first year I am truly on my own- I am going on my 2nd yr staying here, and I won't neccesarily have the help of my dad all the time. I live with my boyfriend Patrick who helps me A LOT, also have a brother next door as well who could help..
SO, the garden itself originally was 100 ft long x 80 ft wide.. this year we are going to cut it back to 60 ft long by 40 ft wide. Just too much space, not using it all. Fence is old and falling apart, this way we can use the good parts of the fence and fix up the space a bit. Since my grandfather has passed away in 2008 we just haven't been on top of the garden like we were... this year is going to be different though! I know it.. boyfriends parents have horses and compost piles we are starting to cultivate into the soil.
Anyone who is actually reading this feel free to leave comments/ advice! Today we worked in the garden weedwhacking, cultivating and spreading horse manure/compost. We can really use the center of the garden yet since we discovered a rabbits nest!! Waiting a week or so until they grow up and then we can have the middle back. Hopefully will start planting this week! Usually start Memorial day weekend but I think I'm going to try and get an early start this year!
