Weed'em & Reap work day and ramblingsPosted Saturday, May 15, 2010, at 7:07 PM
We worked on the garden at Celebration Way today but did not get too far. Jere's electric tiller was trying hard but the clay and rocks proved to be too much.
Where Bobby P. turned some soil with the shovel, it did OK, but the rocks were still formidable. We eventually decided to save the tiller and dig select holes for tomatoes during our next meeting this coming Saturday.
We'll mix peat, and top soil with fertilizer and then use the water blanket Jere is testing for a National Gardening group. May test growing in bags of potting soil and a few hay bale gardens to compare their success.
