The Backyard Garden Begins

Over the weekend, while Nat was in NYC, I decided to get started on turning that totally-underused patch of real estate on the south side of our house into a world-class vegetable garden.  The area is about 30' by 15' and needed some attention.  I got busy by digging out a ton of Irises and then rototilled the whole place.

In order to both make it useable while working and to keep the weeds down, I installed landscape fabric.  Good thing, too, because as soon as I was done with the fabric, the rain came down.  But I was able to come right back out and get busy working because the mud stayed away.
Laying out the raised beds is on my list of jobs this week.  Since I don't have class anymore, my nights can be spent in the yard!
