Garden starts to take shape

There’s a lot of garden work going on at Brambleberry this spring. We are moving our vegetable garden to a new location. Our former garden was on low-lying land prone to late and early frosts. So we picked up a spot above the equipment shed where we had the pigs the past two years. So far the lettuce and other cold weather crops are up and doing well.

We’ve yet to put in our tomato plants, but we received some much needed rain recently which allowed us to get beans, squash, melons and other seeds planted.

It’s a lot of work breaking new ground and trying to dig out and suppress the weeds, but that’s gardening. We also need to build a new fence to keep out the rabbits. But having fresh and healthy produce makes it all worthwhile.

Lettuce and other cold weather crops are doing well in the new garden.
