once that was done, the tilling began.
as beloved tilled, i spent time raking and leveling everything out. i didn't take a picture of it right after the tilling/leveling off, but oh-well.
anyhow, after realizing that i couldn't plant in a straight row without some guidance, beloved quickly threw something together for me, hence the extension cord and t-posts.
don't laugh! it was harder then i thought to evenly space out and make straight. i have lots to learn!
after planting 4 rows of onion sets, we had to call it a day. the weather was getting worse and we were starving.
before we could clean up, i had to properly water the onions i had just planted. little did i know that i hadn't left myself a visual clue as to where i had JUST planted. dang it! beloved took mercy on me, helped me find my planted onions and then hammered in a few sticks in, in order to help his beginner wife refocus. he joked and told me that the sticks reminded him of tombstones for a family pet. i smiled and agreed.
after a quick clean up, we headed inside and called it a day. i couldn't believe how tired i was from just the little work i had done. whoever called homesteading easy living had no idea what they were talking about.
fingers crossed that we are seeing the end to the cold/frost mornings here in kansas. i have more seeds and plants to get going!
peace and love to you all!
