We have a small little plot in our yard that we hope to use for a garden spot next year. So, in the meantime, we are trying to prepare the ground. So far, we've ripped up weed barrier, and mulch. We plan to try to compost in this spot (leaves, grass clippings, and fruit and vegetable scraps). The children actually enjoyed this activity of digging and burying things like banana peels and kiwi skin. I heard one lady refer to this sort of activity as her "redneck garbage disposal." Hopefully in less than one year I'll be posting pictures of the children picking beautiful produce!
