Working for the Weekend

Hey friends & comrades,

What a weekend. Working all week and heading up to our garden site and shoveling all weekend then driving back to work for the week again is surprisingly awesome.  It was a good productive weekend in farm-prep land.

The to-do list is getting tadone. We shoveled all the dirt out of existing raised beds in a pre-existing 20x52' garden area. We'll reuse the raised beds elsewhere. There were an amazing amount of gnats, thus the bandito look.

We checked in on the pile of manure got last weekend. It's composting beautifully.

Picking up another load of manure in the quintessential cranky ol farm truck. We're so thankful Andrew's mom and dad are letting us use it to pick up manure. It's not any set of parents who let you fill their vehicle with animal poop.

We are very thankful to have a friend who is a Master Gardener who's provided us with manure and advice along the way. She advised us to spread manure and till it into the soil this year, then sow a green manure crop such as a fall rye.

Andrew is a tilling BEAST.

Our awesome friend Colton brought over a bobcat with this crazy attachment that broke up our parched dirt so we can till/fertilize next week. We really have a lot of wonderful people in our lives to be thankful for.

Our anthem these days:
