Garden Beginnings: Feb. 2006

Here you can see just how deep the nasty dense clay went! Gerard dug through it to get to the nice sandy soil underneath. This was a HUGE job now! This is now Feb. 2006! We started working more on it since planting time was coming up and bare root roses were going to be arriving soon!
Here is Gerard hard at work! Look at that clay! There was no way anything could grow in that...we had to dig it out if we wanted a nice garden of any kind. We bit off more than we could chew but I think any gardener who's addicted will agree it's worth it in the end.
China and newly adopted Madie are helping out.
Hard work? Nah this is fun!Okay, now I'm tired!
