A productive day
I LOOOOOOVE days that we spend working together on cleaning our house or working outside. Yesterday we cleared out our flower beds in the backyard (which were previously totally over-run with aloe vera plants--don't worry, there's more out front.) and are getting them ready to plant some vegetables. I'm so excited! We are going to make some raised beds to plant more food, but haven't gotten to that yet. This blog has a GREAT tutorial on the subject. We also got a compost barrel from the city (they cost $5, which they add to your next utility bill and deliver to your house) and started to compost!! I know it will take a little while for that to become useful, but it feels so good to have done something towards our gardening goal.
Anyone have any suggestions on the garden or composting?
