I was going to do a several post retrospective about my garden but soon realized I wont have the time to do this...gather pictures etc...maybe I will do this at a later date. I have good reasons. I'm getting prepared to start my next class; Excel Spreadsheet. It starts on the 17th; two weeks earlier that originally scheduled! I am absolutely certain it will take much of my time. So; between work, keeping up the garden and school work I will be plenty busy!
I have always wanted to plant a garden but my living situation was never conducive to doing so until I move here. I have a ginormous backyard and one of the first things my landlord said was "feel free to do anything you want with the yard; build a pool, plant a garden. Whatever". I nixed the notion of pool building immediately! I did however begin to plan a garden and the next thing you know I was digging up the yard.
Let me back up a few years...OK a lot of years. I've never planted a garden in my entire life and my only experience was watching my grandma work in hers. I recall with great fondness eating the fruits of her labor...boysenberry pie, strawberries, potatoes... I remember helping her shuck corn and snapping green beans. I didn't remember it being hard work. Probably because I didn't actually do the work!
So; I started digging up the grass all the while thinking this was going to be easy. I was wrong. It was hard. It was backbreaking. It was not easy. But I continued.
To be continued.......
