This week Phil is working hard on our garden at the new house. He is fencing it, tilling it, planting the potatoes, onions, black berry & blueberry plants. I'm very excited that on Saturday I will be able to see the house for the first time! Phil and I are taking our anniversary day away to work in the new garden for a few hours, see the house then go out to a nice restaurant in Manitowoc that Phil has a gift certificate for.

We hope that by the end of our garden time on Saturday to have all the cool veggies in, the beds marked, and everything freshly watered. Our main garden is 42' X 75'. We will have a vine garden between the garage and barn for the vine veggies. Our raspberries, black berries, and blue berries are in different places around the property too.

We are going to be doing some successive plantings of several of our veggies as suggested in the the book I read on four season gardening. Over the next few days I'm working on getting my cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, onions, lettuce, and cabbage hardened up so we can plant them on Saturday. So, off I go to put them outside for a little wind and sun!
