Digging in the Dirt

Yesterday looked like mid winter. The sun was shining and the world was a gorgeous place...

 Beautiful as it was, 
we were beyond thrilled that today was a different kind of day.

My kind of day.

A real gardening day.

 We burned a lot of old grass and took turns breaking up the soil in the new market garden patch. 
The barn garden was cleaned out of cornstalks and last year's tomato plants. 
We even had a picnic so that we would not have to waste time cleaning up to go into the house.
We surprised ourselves at how much we were able to accomplish.
After day one in the market garden patch it is quite evident we will be working to build up the soil with a lot of mulch and compost. It's a good thing we got started now.


  1. Where do you plan to sell the produce? Do you have a local farmer's market? Kristy

  2. There are a couple of farmer's markets. We're still in the process of figuring it all out, though.

  3. Looks like fun! :-) Do you live in Washington? The scenery looks so much like near where we used to live.

  4. What an amazing blog! Love your photos! We are in the NW MT. Are you SDA?
    : )

  5. YES! We are SDA!. Thanks for stopping by.
