A Man on a Mission
As you can see, Ralph has been a man on a mission these last few days. Those first two beds have been amended, rototilled, sifted, tamped down, watered and planted with all sorts of tasty fall greens. To keep weeds at bay in between the rows, he's cut rubber roof. I'm sure his method of gardening will be much more prolific than me planting and then rooting through the weeds to find what I've attempted to cultivate.
