Accomplished this week:
Dani and Rachel cut the trees to complete a circle for our driveway
James raised and attached boxes we had previously had on the ground. Jared and Christa helped Shannon fill and mix the soil. Look – no more weeds!
Tuesday: James completed 5 raised beds that turned into a virtual greenhouse; Shannon, Christa, and Jared planted starts and seeds
Hubby hard at work
Future pesto for our favorite meal: salmon pizza!
Jared flexed his muscles and did almost all the watering
Wednesday: tilling, raking, planting peas & beans and annual grass seed
Our former potato patch hosted wheat grass last summer for erosion control. James tilled it in while Dani and Shannon turned the compost piles
About 1,000 seeds of each peas and beans went into the ground in record time with an assembly line, and the rain came off and on throughout. James and Rachel watered by 5-gallon jug – by hand. Hoping for a spigot installation by the end of the week.
God finished the watering for us today.
Final step: mulching. Now praying for lots of peas and beans!
