Getting the Garden Going

Over the weekend, Hubs worked in the garden emptying the compost bins and building me a new raised bed.

Not the most pleasant of tasks right now, considering it's like a million stinkin' degrees outside!

But in the end, I got a brand new raised bed (you ROCK Hon!) filled with FREE compost.


I can't wait till my seed order comes in, and I can get out there and start planting for the fall!

It looks great. I can't believe there isn't a bunch of skinks in that compost! They love compost piles.

He works fast...keep him around for sure, LOL. It is hot and humid for sure!

It's actually cool here. Makes me want to grill more.
Considering you have a garden around more during the year, do you miss it the short time it's not there?

Dani said...

FC, I have skink envy!
The one you rescued the other day was a beauty. :)

Darla, yep, he's a keeper.

Sham, horribly so. It's such a part of my daily routine that I'm kinda lost when summer sets in and there's nothing growing. This year though I've been doing a lot of sewing and that's helped a lot.

Chickory, here's what was on my order to rareseeds.com.

Chantenay Red Core (I think this was a lettuce)
Creole Collards
Strawberry Cabbage Lettuce
Crimson Forest (lettuce)
Cheddar Califlower

I'm gonna hunt around today and see if I can find some seed potatoes. I think I waited too long though. :(
