New Garden

I did it, I'm done!

Oh, I forgot this.

Under the blue tarp is all the sod removed from the garden. I alternated the sod with hay used to mulch the garden last year. Since the new garden will be where the tomatoes are going, I will not need to do anything with the compost pile until Mother's Day. I added a compost additive to increase the decomposition rate. Hopefully I will be able to sift it and add it back to the garden at that time.

This is not the only compost pile I have to sift through this spring. I was hoping that I would not end up with an over flowing pile last year because I did not start any new gardens. Boy was I wrong!

I will be busy this spring.
