The Garden is In!

It has been quite a bit of work, and there were a couple of false starts, but the garden is officially planted. The previous owner of our property in Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island had built a fantastic area for gardening. It is even finished with 8 foot fencing to keep out the deer. Unfortunately, the garden plot had not been worked for the last year or maybe longer and it was badly overgrown.

We got rid of the grass, invasive blackberry bushes and general weeds. Then we terraced the garden and put in raised beds. Finally conditioned the soil and put in the seeds.

Now it is up to the sunshine and the rain. Over to the Creator and the living systems of Creation.
