started working on the garden while i have a few days of sun on vacation. weeded the area, raked, then did my own half-assed version of a double-dig (more of a single dig with some mixing), then raked again. soon we’ll be ready for planting (hopefully sometime next week when the sun comes out before i have to go back to work)
teaching pickle to weed
weeding done, raking complete
i dug rows like such
and scooped each row's dirt into the preceding row i had just finished
until i was all done, then rake in some compost, and ready to plant
we have already started some seeds in the mud room and have a fig tree and avocado tree ready to go. full list of crops to come. hoping that whole area will look really great come spring/summer. just need to train the neighbor’s cat to not take a poo in the garden.
