As a novice farmer/ gardenere I didn’t even give thought to seeds this first time around. All of my vegetables are from starter plants, approx 5″ tall.
The plot has housed the tomato and hop plants for the past month but it also held a 10 year old, out of control rosemary plant and multiple amaranth bushes (which are a royal pain in the ass to remove). Last week I had the gardener chop all of it down. He’s only paid to mow the lawn so it was up to me to not only remove the debris of the rosemary slaughter but to excavate the whole 5′ x 9′ portion of the garden.
I don’t have before photo’s of the rosemary bush, but debris pile? check this out.
Yesterday, I borrowed a wheelbarrow from my father and moved the earth! Well at least it felt like it. I spent 3 hours Sunday morning shoveling and tilling a decent portion of the plot.
