My daughter and I spent four hours in the backyard today, preparing our 8×20 garden: raking out dead grass, turning over the dirt with a pitchfolk and shovel, outlining the garden’s perimeter with a hoe. We then divided the garden into about 2×2 squares and planted spinach, lettuce, and carrots. I think I’ll post a photo of the garden, maybe tracking its progress throughout the summer.
Besides my parents, I don’t know anyone who plants a vegetable garden.
