I love dirt

My husband extended our veggie garden this year. It was a win win situation, as he wanted to feed pieces of sod to the chickens, and I wanted to plant more veggies. Somehow, that garden always gets taken over by cut flowers, but this year I plan to cultivate more things that we can actually eat and can. Now the garden is bigger and nicely edged. Also, my neighbor dropped a pile of manure the size of Rhode Island onto the garden last year and now that it has wintered over the soil is like gold. That's some good dirt. I can't wait to dig in.
