Garden - Round 2

Who would have known you could grow stuff in your garden this late in the year? But ya can! And we are! Or at least we’re going to try again.

This morning I went out and picked the last of the cucumbers and zuchinni, some beans, peppers and more ripe tomatoes and then after school the boys and I went to work cleaning and clearing out some space for the fall crops.

First we took out all the stepping stones that we getting buried under compost, weeds, grass and very large garden plants.

Next we removed all the old plants to clear up more space.

Then we turned all the dirt and broke it up with the Garden Weasel.

Then we added some poop (steer manure) and planted carrots, radishes, broccoli, onions, spinach, lettuce and cabbage.

Because I have been finding slugs in the garden again I also put out the broken egg shells I have been saving all summer. I really hope they work because they look sort of ridiculous…

I don’t know what I’m thinking when we’re still not done with Round 1??? :o)
