Garden Time!!

The weather has finally started to warm up....sort of... and be sunny. Glynn and I have been working hard on the garden. A few weeks ago we had it tilled by a neighbor and it is now twice the size it was last year. Yesterday we bought 16 bales of mulch hay, and got 1/2 truckload of well composted cow manure. We also tilled up a new garden out in the "back forty". That got planted before I went to Haiti, with carrots, beets, parsnips, kale, lettuce, cabbage and 3 asparagus plant. I've been making "squash piles" like crazy too. I think squash is my favorite thing to grow.
