garden started


Here is some lovely seedlings I purchased from Azure Standard last month. These are all in the ground now.

I love getting these from AZ, because they come fresh, organic and beautiful. I have been very pleased. I can't imagine doing it any other way now.

I am trying to garden without tilling, so I do have many weeds, but it could be worse. The soil is quite workable in most areas, but I do regret throwing a few piles of dirt from the memorial garden in there...WHAT WAS I THINKING?? SERIOUSLY!
Can we say rocks??

I have my plank boards laid out and I planted seeds while it was still cold outside in April. I love seeing the sprouting results, which includes spinach...yes...I have horrible luck with that one. I have quite a few coming up!

Spinach, radishes, beets, lettuce, sweet peas.

I will update soon.

More seedlings coming.

I also grow a ton of creeping charlie..yuck! 

I actually felt like I could get this yard/ garden into shape one day and dreamed about building a very clean, lovely chicken coop, for my 3 I am allowed to have here in Silvis.

If I remember correctly, you have a large garden and can tomatoes. Is that true?

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
