Spring bed preparation

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

It’s spring here, and that means it’s time to start cleaning out last summer’s beds and preparing them for the next season. There is a municipal compost program in Sierra Vista, and we got a truckload (1 cubic yard; about 1,000 pounds) of compost there last week.


Here is one bed after weeding, composting, and watering.


The spring tat soi (an Asian green, similar to spinach) is looking good, and we’re starting to eat asparagus!


And as usual for the time of year, my office conference table is full of tomato starts.
