But, better late than never! I was shoveling dirt back into my barn garden.
Over the past month, I took all the plants out and either relocated them or put them in pots. Then Mister put in a drainage pipe and rebuilt part of the stone wall.
I had asked him to dig out a boulder (or "very large rock") for me, and he decided to dig out all the dirt and screen it, because the soil was very rocky.
Then, I began with a layer of leaf mold a few inches deep, then covered that with a few inches of soil, and wetted that all down with the hose (so the cats wouldn't use it for a bathroom).
There's a lot more to do . . . putting the rest of the soil back, mixing some perlite and manure in it, and then replanting the bulbs and potted plants. I'm tired!
