Daily rambles about quilting, gardening, reading, cooking and just plain old being.

the siren song of the soil

It is hard to get any inside work done when the sunshine and soil are calling my name. We rented a tiller for the new-old tractor, tilled up the CLAY!..gack! and then did some reading on amending the soil.

Today, the hubs built the raised bed frames and we placed those today. Then while I sadly went back inside to read some more he added two bags of compost (we haven't generated any yet at the new place) and two bags of sand (to offset the clay) to just one of the 4X8 beds.

The hubs did lots of hard work, so why am I so tired? 18 more days until the end of the semester.
