And a blister, and my lower back is SCREAMING at me!
It ain’t much, one row so far.
Several hot peppers, two kinds of tomatoes and a few herbs.
I had to start from scratch, digging up the established lawn with a shovel and a mattock.
There is a small yard behind Chez Rat Hole and with the price of groceries following the same trajectory as the Space Shuttle, I figure I could put in a small garden and not have to mow so much useless grass.
My neighbor has a pretty well established garden he has been working on for several years and already has volunteer potatoes coming up with out having to lift a finger.
We have a late growing season here, this is he 31st of May, one day before June.
Earlier this month we had snow and some wicked assed hail storms.
I figure I have at least till the end of September and probably clear into October for a growing season. Most everything will grow in 3 months so I have lots of time.
I have a whole buttload of digging in front of me but if I am doing that I ain’t sitting on my ass in a bar, win, win.
