This is a sequel to My First Really Good Garden. I'll update this as the season progresses, whether the garden is good or not. I figure that if it's another good garden, it might encourage other beginners (excitement can be viral), and if it's a bad one, the it becomes 'a learning experience,' (for me and others.)
Today (11 March '21) was the first day I actually got outside and did 'gardening.' I put up my compost corral. The three photos depict the process; the first one just the stakes and the fencing, then a bunch of cardboard at the bottom; then the first batch of compost added. It's “Winter“ compost, kitchen scraps added to the edges of the garden over the months, collected in cardboard boxes to keep it together until today. Over the season as I add more fresh compost and turn it all over, this will get mixed in and gradually added to the garden as mulch, side dressing or even buried.
