This week my husband busted out the tractor and tiller and grubbed out some grass and tilled a bit on a new 25 ft x 10-ish ft garden area. The clay we have here definitely makes a till pan, so we went over it with a garden fork and shovel, and then I broke it up with a metal rake.
The next step is to let whatever kikuyu pop up in the losened soil so we can find it and turf it out. That grass could definitely moonlight as steel cable. I plan to put in some brassicas and beans, basically. I wish I had some potato to put in first, but cabbages are one thing I know will grow all the time here in great abundance.
I have a little more clean up and replanting to do in the greenhouse, and all housing (animal and people) needs the deep cleaning that teachers often do during school breaks.
I also have this strangely Fall urge to bake and make soups and stews. Hopefully, I will make enough to freeze or can, so there are quick meals to have as the days get shorter (even in Hawaii). I never quite got around to do as much of that as I'd planned during the summer.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
