A perfect day for gardening! Just had a few things to take care of before attending to the garden: a 5K race, mowed my father’s lawn and running a few errands. Seems simple enough but I did not get to work in the garden till 6:30 at night. I had an hour and a half to do some more ground prep.
I need to interject a side note here. The total area of land is 10 feet by 20 feet. After a lot of soul searching I have decided the whole area need to be utilized. This area is blocked off on two sides: the west side has lined by ten feet of fence and the north is lined by 30 feet of a garage wall.
The fence plans are coming along nicely. I only need thirty feet of fence to protect the garden. I did some window shopping at Home Depot and there is a wire fence that is three feet tall by 50 feet long—perfect! Need this and a couple of poles and I’m set.

So I spent the hour and a half clearing out some more weeds and as I did so my imagination ran wild with the many possibilities for this garden. Growing up I hated pulling weeds and I still do; however, after I get over this obstacle I will have get to have the rewarding work of fencing the garden and planting the garden…still just need to decide on what else to grow.
