grass FAIL

This past weekend we prepared the soil in two of our garden beds for this year's crop. Crab grass has proven a worthy foe in our gardening endeavors and every year we promise ourselves that we won't let it get out of control. Obviously, this easier said than done - especially when attempting to grow a quasi-organic garden. After removing the grass roots from each bed, we added vermiculite, peat moss, manure and compost. Hopefully this will provide a lasting foundation for healthy soil for years to come.

  2. This is such a fun blog to follow! Your awesome gardening skills pair very nicely with your killer video editing skills. I love the shot of Oggie looking through the chicken wire fence. Can't wait to see the Brussels sprouts sprout (they're my favorite)!

  3. I enjoyed Jon's expression of frustration with crab grass. I laughed out loud at that one. :)

  4. Awesome video, you guys! I second Sergio's motion on the killer editing skills. I love the time lapse effect. It makes gardening look so fast and easy!
