This Years Garden

 This years garden will be in the old chicken yard. By using this yard the fence that kept my chickens in should keep the bunnies out. Plus, all the weeds we pull from the garden will be tossed over the fence into the new chicken yard.
Elizabeth and I have been slowly working the ground.
I saved all my fireplace ashes, this is just a small part of what is stored in the garage, to be used in the garden.
 We have been breaking up the dirt by shovel and hauling compost to mix with the dirt.
 Hopefully the combination of dirt, compost, ashes and fertilizer from the chickens will make for a productive garden.
 In the middle of transplanting tomatoes we had a setback.
Our small garden tractor died! I can't complain since it's over 30-years old. Pat grew up using this small workhorse :O)
 Until we get the garden tractor up and running again, I am stuck hauling with a wheelbarrow.
I really miss the garden tractor, dirt is heavy!

Thirty years is nothing to sneeze at...Wow!

I hope your garden grows well. It's a lot of work, but it looks like you don't have weeds to contend with.
