Most people would not be so quick to dump a load of horse manure on an inheritance from a beloved grandmother. It’s exactly what she wanted though. I promise! My grandma left this world with very few possessions. She just wasn’t that type of person. Most of the things she had were useful items like a sewing machine and the garden cart I now own. The cart is humble in appearance and modest in size – kinda like my Grandma was actually. Make no mistake, this wheeled contraption is incredibly useful around the garden. I use it to haul all sorts of garden material from pulled weeds to the day’s harvest. It’s easy to pull even when full and it reminds me of a very special lady. Win, win!
With a bit of help from my Bella girl and in between chasing wee garden baby and checking out Tommy’s army figure creations, the horse manure is placed. I even managed to get some planting done. We now have beans, lettuce, kohlrabi, spinach and dill seeds nestled into the new soil. While all of this was happening, the seedlings awaiting transplant basked in the sun for the very first time. They have returned to their basement home for the evening since the nights are still chilly. Soon though, very soon, my young plant babies will be ready to permanently relocate to their outside home. Exciting times are upon us at The Green Brick Road!
