Step 1: Dig. With a little bit of planning and some physical effort we have changed a 3’x16’ plot in our back yard into what will become a vegetable garden. The diagrams have been drawn and the grids laid out. Plans for the “south garden” (yes, a “north garden” has been dug as well) include okra, tomatoes, jalapenos, pablanos, bell peppers, green beans, onions and maybe a sunflower or two to top off the ends of the rows. Let the gardening games begin.
