Our landlord graciously agreed to let us dig up a grassy corner of our back yard that seemed perfectly suited for a vegetable garden. Over the course of two weekends and a little more weekday work we dug up the grass, loosened the soil, amended it and planted a full vegetable garden to feed us during the Summer.
I was sore for four days after this. I could barely walk the next day.
Haley and Zoe cared for a few of the denizens that were displaced by our farming. These included a yellow spotted salamander and a skink of some kind.
