Tim finished building the grow bench downstairs on Thursday, so Friday I got busy planting seeds.  Several are planted now, but I needed to buy a few more, so today I will plant those.  It will be fun to watch them grow!

Later, Tim got out the tractor and began to dig out the area we will terrace.  First, he needs to fix the retaining wall he'd had there, then we'll terrace the hill there, with "lasagna gardening". This book was recommended, and looks great.  It explains a form of "sheet mulching", layering and getting the soil ready to plant, along with tips for lots of different vegetables.  See it here: LASAGNA GARDENING
