What We've Been Doing..digging in the dirt

We've been rather busy these last few days....Alan built two of these raised beds as we turn our garden into an easier more manageable arrangement.....we're planning on building two more....you see the "grass mats" in between the beds? Our youngest sons works for the company who makes these and he is going to be bringing quite a few more home as we can afford them...the entire area will be covered so no more weeds! Its alot of work but well worth it......we will continue to amend the soil in the beds.....in the last two years, we've gotten most of the rocks out of the soil, added alot of natural fertilizer and other amendments but it still needs more..very poor ground.......

our weather has been wonderful, and only a little chilly at night.....in the 70s during the day.....so we wanted to get the garden going before the hot season comes in late June/July.  The beds can be covered..we are adding a system so we can installed PVC pipe hoops over them for shade cloth.....tomatoes tend to get sun burned here.....

I just discovered the cutest radio show and wanted to share it with you...Southern Fried Radio with Tim & Christy......if you need a laugh,  you will enjoy them...I know we do......
