Today we started working on the garden. I knew it was going to be a lot of work so we got started early. It tends to get hotter sooner down here so I’m glad we did.
Heres what we started with.
We had to pull the cement tile up first.
After we pulled up the tile, we had to get rid of the rocks and the tarp that they were sitting on.
Heres halfway through.
Look at that beautiful dirt underneath there! I think since it’s been underneath rock and cement for at least 5 years, it should make some really good soil for my plants to grow in. Fingers crossed!
The tarp and most of the rocks are gone at this point. When we got to this step in the process, we decided to stop. It was getting really hot and boy were we tired! Moving rocks and cement tiles is a lot of work!
Tomorrow, we plan on picking up the rest of the rock and tilling the soil. Then I’m going to lay a border around the outside with some of the tile we picked up. I also plan on laying a path down the middle with the tile as well. That way I can reach to pull weeds a little easier. After that, I finally get to plant something! I’ve been waiting soo long to have a garden and I’m so close I can almost taste the tomatoes!
