I managed to break ground today. There is a good chance of rain this weekend and I wanted to get the ground turned over before the ground gets any wetter. We have got 10 to 12 inches of rain in the last 4 weeks and is is still to wet. If I don’t get it while I can it will cause me to have to wait for a few weeks past Easter.
Before

After

While the tilling was going on, one of my best mouser’s was watching from the pecan tree.

I made a short video of LAST years garden and the production. I hope to have as good a year as the last, just not so hot.

(for the embedding … I think that if you choose “use old code” that it should work.)

a fantastic video – from ground-breaking to mealtime. NICE!!
And oh what a glorious garden you have!
I need to be more disciplined.. sigh.

Thank you for the tip
What I am waiting on is the 4 or 5 flats of vegetables I will be getting this weekend.
Thank you for your time.

Wow – what a wonderful spot! I absolutely love your cat – the lynx points are so striking, but what I like best is the imperial look you’re getting from above – lol

I just watched your video – great! (love the happy tune, too).

It’s nice to see it from start to finish – near the end you show a mason jar with what looks to be a mix of the peppers. Are they dehydrated, or was it a salsa? I learned to can tomatoes for the first time last year, but to get a dehydrator and make my own veggie flakes for soups and stews is tempting, I never thought about it until I saw your vid. Now I buy all mine at a health food store. I’m at their mercy when it comes to selection. Seeing your vid has me wanting to make my own custom blends to suit my tastes…

I hope you’ll do a video of this year’s garden!

Cindy thank you for the kind comments. The peppers in the jar are habanaro and jalapeno in vinegar. I will put a few pepper corns and a bit of allspice. That is the cats sleeping spot. And it’s all better if you do it yourself.
Thanks again for the complements.
Stay tuned more to come. The yard is swamped from rain but as soon as it dries out I will get back at it. Meantime I will work in the wood shop.
