Fifth Street Estates May 11,2009

Ever since Dig Day I have been removing sod, grass rhizomes and other stuff from my garden space. I have put every cubic yard of soil through a soil screen and removed rocks bigger than a walnut. I found lots of worms which I treated with respect and care (they are my partners!). There were also a lot of brown beetles in the grass roots–they turned darker in the sun. I have some seeds started inside but nothing has sprouted which has discouraged me. I have raspberries and strawberries in and they are growing. Rhubarb, which has been around forever, is doing well. More stuff going in the ground this week.


One response to this post.
