I keep seeing all these posts about what is coming up in people's gardens...Is it terrible that we JUST NOW put our seeds in the ground? We killed off all of our seedlings...the reality of time got to us. Between animals and barn and kids and life and work and issues...the seedlings now look like a terrible massacre happened.
Our neighbor SO kindly rototilled a huge space in our back yard - the sloped area that lays over our newly installed leach field area. I asked the health inspector if there was a reason we couldn't garden over that space and he said we'd only have to worry about the depth of the blades on the tiller - to make sure we didn't go too deep. Our space is approx. 28 ft. x 66 ft. Finally, today we made the time to plant seeds directly into the ground. We figured that we'd just plant and see what makes it.
