I just took a shower with Derek AND DLJ. We were all in the garden today, a lot, and we all were dirty!
We got a yard of blended compost/soil/manure to top off our veggie beds and replenish our soil storage tanks for the growing season. Half of it is already in the backyard in the beds, and in one of the large storage containers. Then we got a yard of gravel, and all of it was shoveled out in two trips onto the driveway and now some of it is in the backyard on the beginning of the de-lawning of the veggie garden area. There’s a long way to go and a lot of plant blocker fabric and gravel to spread around, but the beds are ready, I turned them yesterday and today added the new soil and turned it all again to mix it all up.
Tomorrow I will plant, and while I was hoping to have an easy day on Sunday, I should probably do more gravel work, as it is too loud to do when Derek sleeps and not something I can really do well when he is with me in the garden, with all the trips to the driveway with the wheelbarrow.
Dinner is pasta with sauce, veggie and wine. Yum. I hope we all sleep well tonight after so much work!
