We are updating our raised bed gardens this spring. Step one is layers of weed control fabric, a ton (literally) of soil, a ton of M-10 sand, and new treated boards for our 10 raised beds. Our delivery guy did not exactly separate the railroad ties from the soil and sand… but that’s just one more project for our ATV.
With the lockdown from Corona Virus, we’ve gone through our frozen fig stock this winter…. One our of favorite recipes with figs we started using in 2017…as part of our catering at Ridge the Edge in Jamestown Tennessee. Frozen figs go fantastically with fresh parsley, over orichetti pasta in a white wine and garlic sauce. Notes of sautéed sweet onions highlight the dish and make for a welcome change from the more savory tastes of winter.
This time of year we reset our flower beds, make certain our pruning is complete, await the last freeze of winter, and prepare for a plethora of life to surround us. While we see that the end of winter is here… here’s a couple pictures of our gardens over the last couple months.
It’s a mix of gardens, butterflies, horses, hunting dogs, a lot of beautiful sunsets and hard work. But we love it, and we hope that you will too, as you take a look around.
From time to time we may have recipes, hunting advice, gardening tips, and all sorts of other things, so check-in every once in a while to have a look-see.
