we moved some leftover topsoil into two rows. i don’t have a disc harrow for the tractor yet, so we just piled the soil pretty deep. hopefully this extra deep bed holds the grass back in the spring .
afterward, we put in a couple hundred heads of garlic.
we are a garlic heavy household, so this is probably just enough for personal consumption, plus seed for next year.
i will note that it was quite nice to be planting stuff, rather than building stuff. building is a miserable, anal retentive chore that i am not very good at.
conversely, providing potential for things to grow is a hopeful experience for me. even if i don’t do something perfectly, the garlic is probably going to be okay. i’m generally not optimistic about anything else, but i’m pretty sure the garlic will grow.
