After clearing away the sunflower plants I left over the winter, I have now spread half a pile of compost over the first garden circle, along with a layer of black dirt for extra nourishment.

Last year this was the pumpkin patch. This year it will be filled with mixed vegetables and flowers.

In the next few days, I’ll rototill the whole area, then make a few raised beds and sow them with carrots, onions, etc. and after that start preparing the next garden circle.

The last few days have been near perfect with lots of warm sunshine, and the dirt is drying out and warming up. I must, however, be careful not to get too rambunctious, because it could still get freezing cold again. Last years earliest sowing didn’t turn out very good at all – but it seems to be imposible not to try every year.
