As I remember, the original conversation went like this: me “I was thinking about enlarging my garden for next year”, husband “Oh we can just move the fence over”, me “What about the stumps”, husband “Oh, we’ll just take them out”. Me “Great!”. It seemed so easy. So we started at it…… Now, several weeks later, with sore backs and blisters, a BIG pile of rocks and giant uprooted stumps, we are done.
But its a beautiful fresh new plot of dirt. Definitely a cause for celebrating with a nice martini!
The photos show my new plot from each of the four corners. The new dimensions are 23-24 feet x 27-29 feet. (The plot is not square, so the paired numbers are each end.) About 660 square feet total.
My old plot was 15 x 24 ft, 360 sq feet. So it now almost twice the size.
And I’m planning all sorts of new crops for next year. Here’s my list of my new ideas.
