First a garden

Garden
 We have a garden!
Staking out the garden
In the beginning.

Cutting up the sod for the garden
After the first tractor came through, cutting up the sod.

We had another tractor come through to till the earth and break the sod up as much as possible.   Grass is extraordinarily resilient.  We are finding pockets of green grass here and there, where clumps of sod were turned under and not completely broken up.

We've planted onions, radishes, carrots, kale, and lettuce--
stuff we'll actually eat if it all turns out.

Radish row in the garden
The seeds have sprouted, in spite of our best efforts and worrying and dithering.

Now to see whether these seedlings will turn into full-fledged plants...
