Building a Garden

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Today, we worked on the new garden all day. The kids helped us remove the remaining sod this morning. My husband spent the afternoon building two small retaining walls in the garden. I worked on amending the soil with peat moss. Tomorrow we will finish amending the soil, and will put the landscape fabric on, and finally put in the plants.

It was a physically exhausting day. It was a wonderful day!!! A year ago I didn't have enough energy to even feel happy looking at my garden. I don't recall a time in my life when I would have had the energy or strength to do what I did today. And tomorrow, I want to go back and finish up. I feel so happy, I wish I could share this feeling with all of you.

Well, Good Night everyone! I hope your day was filled with joy and your tomorrow is filled with sunshine.

    First off, Happy Mothers Day! I spent yesterday digging sod in my back yard. I just want enough ground to plant several tomato plants. The fellow next door decided not to plant a garden this year. I refuse to put tomatoes with my flowers! I'm glad you feel so much better this year! Happy gardening!
