One of the first things that I wanted to do when we moved to our homestead was to get a garden started. It was the beginning of August, but I had dreams of a fall garden. After attempting to dig a few small beds, I realized just how rocky and hard the soil was! There is a lot of clay content in our soil, and a LOT of rocks. I went ahead and planted a few odds and ends, which did grow and we got a few things out of the garden that fall. But I knew that we could make it much better.
