But, before we sowed some of our seeds, we needed to do some "construction". We added another 12 inches depth to J's raised 12x6 veggie bed and we made C's new 6x2 flower bed. This meant lifting and hoeing 2500 pounds of soil and peat moss. The muscles were achy that night and the kids headed off to bed early!

C planted a variety of bulbs in her garden - Winter Hardy Glads, Dutch Irises, Daffodils, and Lilies - and Blue Delphinium and Jester Blue Bicolor seeds.

Our "Dirt Digger", S, decided to transplant 2 little pine trees he found in the shadow of a large rock and made divots all over the lawn looking for worms to add to the garden. And did he ever need a long, sudsy bath!
|This was Just the Beginning!|
