So for the past two years dh has been like, “don’t start a garden here, because we’re going to be moving soon, and it’s not worth to get it started just to have to leave it” Well, guess what? It’s been twoooooo years!!! And I’ve got to the I don’t care point. So a couple of weeks ago the electric company came by tagging trees to cut away from the electric lines. And we asked if they could drop off any wood chips, and they were very happy to be rid of them if we wanted them. They said normally they can’t do that for people that want them because the people don’t own the property, but since we totally own this place they can!!! Whhheeeeeeee! So it’s been five or so days, and today here they come with the first load!
Isn’t it pretty!!!! 😀 And yep, it’s already steaming a little from sitting in the back of the truck! So this week we’re going to get this pile knocked down and taken over to the back fence area that gets the most sun. And they’ve promised to bring us more!!! My back yard should be half filled with garden next year if they keep bringing me these beautiful chips!!!!
I’ve already started planning out potatoes and onions first thing in the Spring! We’ll work on other things like kale, and spinach, and herbs when we get more soil to put under the wood chips. Everything back there is just hard packed clay soil right now, and all that grows in it is just tumbleweeds, and scrub.
Time to get our Back to Eden garden off to a wonderful start! ❤ ❤ ❤
