Choosing our garden area
Ok - so I'm not sure I have my husband totally on board. He has Ok'd the site I have choosen for the new garden, but still has ideas (at least in my mind) of doing things that I don't agree with. Such as using the manure from the horses which isn't composted, aged or screened - I've gone along with this over the years and always end up with gardens where the weeds are out of control.
I also would like to go as natural and organic as possible and have found compost from our local natural store that I would like to bring in to bring our Pennsylvania soil up to par. Not sure if he will go for that yet.
This project is one that is on our "to do" list and we hope to start on it late summer or early fall. It will be a major undertaking and I want to put a lot of efficient energy into this project. First we need to finish our garden shed which will part of the garden, patch up our horse pasture fencing, put up a small run-in shed for our hair sheep, etc. You know how it goes on a farm, no matter the size.
Stay tuned to see how our garden unfolds!
