Images of all my work thus far this year is here Gallery images of 2012 gardening. My thumbnails creator on the gallery seems broken for now, but clicking on the full size of each image works.
Got to work on my garden for the first time of the season today. Something about working in the dirt is so meditative for me. Even though kneeling over and bending over the ground while pulling weeds out is hard on the body, the effects on my mind and soul is calming. The results don’t look like much yet, but given where it started, I am pleased with my efforts for the day.
Before, the beds were full of dead things from last year, so my first task was weeding out all the dead vegetation.
In the two hours of weeding on the first bed I noticed that it looked like my chives and onions may have survived the winter so I replanted them. Time will tell if they survived or not.
The second bed is still a big mess as that is where the peas and herbs were last year and I ran out of steam to work on it today. I’ll work on weeding this next weekend.
