Clay soil has ever-so-slowly turned into tillable soil over the last 18 years we have gardened in this area and 3 years ago I cut my garden to 1/3 of its original size to be a lot more manageable! I plant my necessities...haricot verts, parsnips, radishes, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, Rouge vif d'Etampes pumpkins and Long Island Cheese pumpkins. This year I also added peas JUST to make this:
I marked my rows with branches and copper this year, as those small plastic tags can never be found once the plants start growing! I like the sparkle they add! I have a small raised bed just for lettuce as I HATE to weed and I can harvest leaves and let some grow into heads.
I found some other treasures in the yard this Spring day...
