Yesterday was the start of a love/hate relationship with the soil and weather of Idaho.
Yelp – we are planting a garden.
Only, it is not on our property as originally planned – it is next door at my neighbors place. She has a nice garden spot where she has been farmin for years. Only this year she is unable to work the land like she is used to…so Em and I decided to help her out.
We prepare the land and she helps with the watering and picking. A win-win deal. [@more@]
Shoot – we are thinking about hosting a "community garden" there as the plot is big enough to grow a TON of food. We are not sure who, if anyone, is going to join us…but we are offering.
So, yesterday we broke out the tiller and started turning the soil – trying to chop up all the weeds that grew up over the winter and spring.
It was slow going…well, until we were told to stop.
Our neighbor has found someone with a tractor who is willing to disk the whole thing….
