So amazing!  We hadn't gotten to cleaning up and removing the hive from the rain, and then last Wednesday M was working out in the yard.  He heard a sound that he described later as sounding like several leaf blowers starting at once.  He got inside the house, and remembered my camera is in the desk.  I'm so excited he got photos!!!

Spring Garden Prep

At last!  The rain has paused, the sun is shining, and it's a day I am off.  The planets have aligned, and the garden box has been built.  We are ready for spring and summer!  

This is the "before" photo.  We placed the box here as it's a pretty barren part of the garden.  Loads of digging, buckets of compost, heaps of worm tea, and it still doesn't want to produce.  Last year we grew tomato plants here in soil bags (the soil in there was from those bags!) and it worked out pretty well.  But this year - more soil!  more tomatoes!  more garden!
