Wow, is that really what New York dirt looks like? I have to buy dirt like that... so jealous. :)

Great looking garden, and good for you for forging ahead!

Is that soil out of a bag or just normal soil there at your new farm ? Do Tell.

I may have to move to New York....

Your marathon set up & move is impressive~!

I too, want to know if you just lucked into that black gold or if it was bagged.

I'm really impressed that your first full weekend in your new home you got your garden in....but considering the time of year and all, I guess you'd have to make that a priority.

My first year was spent making my home habitable, but I'm making up for lost time this year with the garden.

I guess it's too late for fruit trees, huh? But fruit trees and cane fruits are something you can think about, now that you have your own dirt. And asparagus too, if you're so inclined. All that stuff that takes awhile to be able to harvest. But yay! you can do it now!

You have to be really rippin' happy right now....

I would be guessing, having grown up in that general area---that's not bagged dirt--it's what came with the farm. Luckyluckylucky.

You are a-whirl, girl! Getting so much done in so little time. I'm starting to feel like a slacker - I'm the only one on my block who hasn't mowed my lawn for the first time yet. I'm going for the au naturel look.

I got the paperback version of "Made From Scratch" yesterday and couldn't stop grinning while reading the preface. No, it's not necessary to have the acreage, barns, and beautiful views, but I'm so happy that you've obtained them!

If your soil there is anything like what I had in Port Leyden, it'll grow just about anything you put in it, or on it for that matter! We had a beautiful garden there, and we also had surprise corn, sunflowers and even pumpkins from seeds that were dropped from feeding the birds and deer, the pumpkins were left over jack-o-lanterns from the previous fall that got covered with snow before I could move them!

Aargh! I'm jealous. Our ground is still too wet here in the NW and when we til the dirt really clumps up.

I'm finally caught up. I found Made from Scratch in the library, but then had to go buy my own copy. As soon as I finished the book, I started reading the 1st post in this blog & have been working my way to today. What a ride!

Congrats, Jenna, on all of it. Every. Single. Bit.

Wow, Jenna - you really are one helluva woman! You waste absolutely no time, and you let nothing get in your way. Can I borrow your brain for a little while? I have so many things to do....

WOW Jenna! You are a force of nature! Would you please bottle up some of that energy to share with the rest of us? I can't believe what you have accomplished in a weeks' time - nothing short of miraculous.

To everyone asking about Jenna's dirt....yes its hers. The soil there is amazing (we went to visit her this weekend). She will have much luck with that soil!!

Looking forward to Jenna's answer re the soil, but as a native upstate NYer, I can say we usually have clay or sand for soil, but...... we have an ABUNDANCE of leaves, and compost, and local farms have plenty of good manure from grass fed animals.

My municipality collects leaves and turns them into free compost for anyone (except businesses) to come get).

Home Depot sells something that looks just like our free compost.
