It’s been a busy week on the homestead. The first day of spring ushered in a weekend filled with activity. We started work on my shade garden with the front “L” garden complete and the full shade garden on the side of the house to be dug up this week. (I have never before dug a ditch, and my body feels like someone beat me up while I slept!) I also attacked several fire ant hills inside my raised beds or near my food. Signs of spring are everywhere; the days are counting down to the big spring planting, and there is still much work to be done. This week’s garden photos!
