Getting my feet soiled.

Here is the site we chose for our new larger garden. It gets good sun and is bordered on two sides by trees, providing a nice shaded area for sitting. The soil is fairly rich. There is a gentle slope, but not too much.

So, here is the garden plot for which I paid a local to plow up for me. I have made the leap from my two backyard four feet by four feet raised beds that I started last Spring. They did fairly well, considering I had not gardened before, not counting a little help I gave my mom when I was a child. I am an ambitious gardener. I now have a garden plot of sixty feet by forty-five feet on the family acres. Since I got it going heading into this Fall, it is not fully up and running.
