Wow, a surprise day off. Thought about doing, oh, a million other things, but the yard and the chorus of cats was demanding attention, so I suited up and started digging. Took out more blackberry roots, put in a second raised bed—this one 4x6—and started breaking up clods to fill it with dirt.
At some point I went out with the hubs to do some errands, including stopping by Miller Farms Nursery and picking up a small bag of green manure, a nitrogen-fixing, weed-surpressing cover-crop mix. My intent is to sow the green manure as I finish a box, 'cause I really don't think I'm going to have time to actually raise any winter vegetables this year. Not with all that stinking blackberry and ivy yet to go.
