Someone messed with the "new post" button a while back, and now once you read a post (or even post on it), it disappears from your new post view, and leaves only the ones you haven't read. Strange I know... I kinda liked it the way it was before!

Back to the topic: We took out the trees that were blocking the sunlight, so we have full sun on the entire garden. The sun moves across the garden east to west, and the rows go east to west. Pine trees make up the huge part of the forest on the place, with a few fir. No deciduous trees at all.

I spread some dolamite lime over the garden area yesterday. I've heard that helps neutralize the acid from the pine trees.

Re: Inspiration from the Garden!

I liked the way it was before too (for new posts). I wondered what happened.

Some of my favorites:
I think this is what hooks one to gardening: it is the closest one can come to being present at creation. Phyllis Theroux

I do some of my best thinking while pulling weeds. Margaret Smith

It was such a pleasure to sink one’s hands into the warm earth, to feel at one’s fingertips the possibilities of the new season. Kate Morton

Who has learned to garden who did not at the same learn to be patient? H.L.V. Fletcher, 1949
There are 35 of these quotes.... check them out!

Have you planted your garden yet? I hope to plant mine this weekend....

We planted a small garden a few days ago.

Thanks! I hope your garden does well! There is nothing like fresh tomatoes from the garden! Store bought ones just taste like cardboard!!! And watermelon is a real treat to have out of the garden too!

I was able to plant carrots, peas, onions, kale, spinach, chives, and beans. I am waiting for the weather to warm up a bit more before I put in tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, corn and potatoes.
