A day in the garden

Today we started our spring garden. We made a raised bed where we planted a mixture of leaf lettuces, spinach, swiss chard, radishes and burgundy mustard. If all goes as planned we will have salads from our garden in a few weeks.

Along with the veggies we transplanted three blueberry bushes. As per Felder Rushing's instructions William dug a hole four feet across and a shovel's depth. He then worked the dirt in the bottom of the hole and then added peat to the dirt mixing the dirt and peat well. We then planted all three blueberry bushes in the one hole. They are located just outside our back door. Very convenient for grabbing a handful to go over oatmeal for breakfast or making a blueberry cobbler for dinner.

Next on our agenda is getting the rest of the garden space plowed where we can get it ready to plant the summer veggies.

All in all, we've had a productive day. I am tired but it is a satisfied kind of tired.
