Strawberries, starting seeds, and other Spring updates
Spring is here! Some of the tulips we planted in January are starting to pop up! I was starting to think they were going to be a no show, so it was a very exciting find. We also planted some strawberries and found one of the biggest earthworms I’ve ever seen.
I've been trying to work on garden tasks a little bit each day. Some days I get more done than others and that's okay. Last week we were able to get a load of dirt (9 cubic yards) to fill in the side yard a bit. Thank goodness my dad was willing to bring his tractor over for a day to help us move the dirt! It would have taken us a couple months worth of wheel barrow loads to move all of that dirt. We were trying to lessen the slope of the hill and also cover up the roots of the pine tree that was once there. My plan is to use this as a garden bed. I'm going to try planting the three sisters again this year and other veggies, herbs and flowers. We used split wood from the pine tree to create a sort of terraced retaining wall to hold some of the dirt back.
