In the beginning

I've been out in my dirt plot working for about 3 weeks now. When I arrived to the Smiley community garden that first day the weeds had grown in over the winter. I went to my garden daily for a week pulling out each weed by hand. Last week I went in and laid my organic ground amender to soften my soil. Today I took my hubby Glenn to do one last turn of the soil. Once the soil was turned I reconnect my drip system and set the timer. Justin couldn't wait to get started on planting so I allowed him to plant one pink impatience.(Is that how it's spelled?) I planted Cilantro, Parsley and Sweet Basil. From last summer I still have thriving Lemon Thyme, Oregano and perennials. I can't wait to start planting each new day. I hope you will be inspired to try out gardening for yourself if you haven't already.
