It's what you learn after you know it all that counts. ~Attributed to Harry S Truman
I assumed that in wine country the ground was very fertile, silly me. After testing my area i found it was stripped of all nutrients, the soil contained nothing, which could help explain why when we moved and planted my container veggies they freaked out so badly. Empty soil is good i guess in that i have a blank slate to create in. Since we rota tilled and put the fence up a few weeks I've been feeding the soil and transplanted a few late summer plants.
My mama also got me a composter for my birthday. This baby is great i tell you! You know the kind you spin and don't need a shovel, it so wonderful and promises to have compost in just a few short weeks. It is very nice and i know will get my soil in tip top shape quickly. I am anxious and excited to grow this new space of mine and looking forward to more summer veggies and LOTS of fall ones, yum!
I am now starting to see the fruits of my labor, my first healthy and happy tomato!
Life is SO good!
