It's been more than 10 years with no vegetable garden. You'd think with 2 acres there would be ample space to grow some veggies, but there are few spots with long stretches of sun. After the Bay tree came down, a bright spot appeared in Rebel's yard in front of the stable. Start with some 8x8s cut to suitable length to create a garden bed of some 20+ square feet. Then fill it with compost. I used weeds plus aged horse manure and a bit of dirt. Photos with the dirty gardener were shot using a tripod mounted camera with remote --- hence no gloves on the gardener.
It starts with mixing cut weeds with some horse manure...the best stuff is under the stable.
Move it uphill ... nice exercise - sort of.
