I’ve spent the past week alternating between using the shovel as a Pogo stick and digging through the dirt on my hands and knees. Clearing a garden plot is way more work than I expected when I picked up the shovel last Saturday.
But I chipped away at the task, a few hours a day, until I finished last night. It’s pretty hard to tell from the pictures, but that’s a garden full of seeds!
So far, the garden has mostly cost me time and sweat. I had no gardening supplies, so I picked up a shovel ($8), a trowel ($3), gloves ($2), and seeds ($2).
I planted four hills of squash – two yellow and two zucchini. Those took up the most space, since the hills need two feet of space and then two more between them. Then I have three more rows: peppers, onions, and carrots.
I’m so excited to see what comes up in a few weeks, I’ll keep you posted!
