As you may recall I had laid a piece of plywood on the grass to kill the grass in the winter and have nice black dirt the following spring. It worked great and here I am 2 years later finally using that black dirt. (OK I think it is actually 3 years)
When we lifted up the plywood we found a whole ecosystem of bugs and worms just under the surface. My kids were entertained for quite a while by it:

Now we wait and wonder. Can you grow 2 rows of corn, a row of cucumbers, a row of watermelon and 3 rows of lettuce in a 4x6 garden plot? Did I mention a couple sunflowers Isabelle and I hid in there?
It is all about having fun.
And my deep denial of what a working summer will mean for my life.
