Getting the Garden Ready

If you are like me, you are so glad that winter is finally over and spring is here!  For us here in South Carolina, spring “arrived” around Valentines Day when we first began getting our warm weather!  We’ve had a few cold nights and days since then, but for the most part, spring arrived early here in the South.

I start getting excited about doing some gardening along about now.  For the last several years, we’ve had a pretty good sized garden, but end up getting discouraged when the weather doesn’t cooperate and we have to water everything! South Carolina has a thing about droughts.  It seems to like them!

This year I decided to shrink our garden to a more manageable size and move it back to the side of the house where it was very successful about 7 years ago.  That particular summer gave us tomato plants about 6 feet tall with gorgeous fruit!  Let’s hope this year does the same!  🙂

Last week I cleared out a lot of the weeds and used a shovel to turn the soil.

My plot is about 12 feet by 4 feet.  I can’t wait to finish preparing the soil and get my plants in the ground!
