Garden Part 2: Composting

Jul 21, 2012 3 comments

I was trying to remember where I left off about my garden and realized that I wrote one post on it.  Lame.  We have vegetables and stuff now so this is kind of behind but I want to do it in chronological order.  It just makes more sense that way.  Except for the part where I pretty much forgot everything that happened in the beginning.  Luckily, there are pictures.  So, at least there's that.

Here, we have some mulch and compost.  They brought it to the house in a big truck and when I got home from work we brought it all to the backyard so that hoodlums wouldn't steal it overnight. 

 Then, we put the compost in rows.

Tilled the compost.

Watered the compost.

And that's pretty much it.  Oh yeah, and then we put on mulch.  But I don't think I have a picture of that.  So you'll just have to see what the mulch looks like in the next post when the plants are actually growing.

This is Winston.

Yeah, that's pretty much all of it.

So far, we've stopped there twice for gas.  It is expensive!  Both times, J went in to pay while I stayed outside taking random pictures.

The first time he went in, some guys (hunters?) wanted to know whether he had any maps of the ponds in the forest and got annoyed when he didn't.


The second time, he said he heard the word "wetback" so many times in the few minutes he was in there, that it made him uncomfortable.
