First Crop Planted
The new vegetable garden is marked on the photo above. This area has been a road for at least 90 years; would be interesting to see if we have added enough compost to revive the soil. The supports (and barriers for the dogs) are made with old strips of Oak wood from a local wine cellar, tied with string.
First plants and seeds planted. The old Bentwood chair used to be my grandpa's "gardening chair" - he cut the chair legs shorter to reach down easier . . . I prefer to work on the ground.
