Heavy rains here in Connecticut today, but did that stop us? Did it? DID IT?
Maybe a little bit. But not totally. Because we are tough New Englanders!
My friend is a great cook and lover of local ingredients. He’s helped me install all of the hardest parts of my garden each year. And he’s cooked, canned or eaten lots of my stuff. So it’s only natural that he’s now got his own kitchen garden going.
Today we cut the sod. The rain made it easier and we found worms, grubs and mud. The mud came because there was rain and dirt. Those are the ingredients for high-quality mud.
This plot will be small, but built to produce lots to freeze (beans) and lots to eat (lettuce) and lots to store (onions). In the fall, we’ll get garlic going. Throughout this week we’ll build up the beds much like the shibaguyz. More to come!
