Garden Kickoff

The new season is here. We cleared much of the garden on Saturday and emptied the compost bins. I did hours of digging and was very stiff in my back and arms the next day. (Need to toughen up.) Today I planted seeds in pots with some helpers. The only catastrophe was when Mr. Three decided to walk through the pots and stepped into one of them tipping out contents. As I said to Philip, it was a great patience building project for me. We probably planted 400+ seeds. The seeds planted were zucchini, pepper, cabbage, broccoli, thyme, origanum, onion, sage.
