And what a beautiful weekend it was for shooting scenes and planting veggies!
First, we prepped:
- We soaked the beds thoroughly
- I tilled to loosen the dense loam
- We sprayed worm “tea” (read: poop) on the soil and then tilled it under
Then we planted:
As you can see, the right-hand bed still has some hangers-on from the winter planting. We’re going to make the plants in this bed multi-seasonal.
The mound in the middle is comprised of a) my failed composting efforts and b) my successful (though unintentional) greenhouse efforts: the little cantaloupes had started in the “compost” so I just transplanted them to the mound. I’m a genius (also unintentional).
Finally, we planted some potatoes, some already started—again, from my composter-turned-greenhouse.
Now we water, we weed, and we wait for the sweet, sweet rewards!
How about you? Have you planted your summer garden?
