I’ve got a large pile of dirt outside my kitchen window.
But, we are making progress on our new vegetable garden. Today, we amended the existing soil with equal amounts of compost and aged steer manure. Then added bone and blood meal, which are natural sources of phosphorus and nitrogen.
Here are pictures of what we did today. (Not super exciting, but we are getting there).

|Sprinkling bone meal (Beware of dogs digging afterward – they love the smell of bone and blood meal).|
|Everyone joins into to mix the compost, manure, bone and blood meal with the existing soil.|
|Isn’t it interesting how fresh dirt attracts both dogs and little boys?|
