Breaking Ground

Today was an interesting day.  We set out to cut out some rows, plant potatoes and onions, and hit Plant and See nursery to get our early crops.  Instead, we cut the underground fence line trying to expand our garden a couple of feet.  After a quick fix patch job, we cut out a couple of big rows (18 in. wide) and planted potatoes.  We were slowed down by trying to pick a ton of grassroots out, hoping to head off the attack that is coming a little bit.  The eleven month old, who either wants to eat dirt, pick up dog poop, or just be annoyed that she can't do whatever she wants didn't speed things up.

Here are some before pics: 

We did formulate our plan of attack and plant about 25 potato plants.  Hoping to get our onions cabbage, broccoli, carrots, spinach, brussel sprouts, and spinach in tomorrow.  That's a tall order though.

  1. I am most impressed with your energy. I washed my clothes this morning and they are still in the machine 12 hours later... I guess it is all about motivation, huh? Keep up the good work. Glad you started a blog.
