The homestead projects begin.

Well in 5 days we have rototilled a plot that is 36x36 feet for our garden. Then we put up out fencing to keep the critters out, our nice neighbors gave us a gate that he had laying around . Then we hilled up the beds and away we went on planting. We now have 9 tomato plants,  2 zucchini, 1 crookneck squash, 1 summer squash, two big circles of pole beans, poles yet to be built two varieties of cucumbers, 3 eggplant,  Bush beans, russett potatoes, red onions, wala wala onions, garlic. 2 artichokes, sunflowers,marigolds... Sore muscles and one big smile. Tomorrow we lay the hay mulch.
