We took some time while the sun was shining and before the next rain to go and play in the soil. It seems late to be planting potatoes and onions, but the way the weather has been, we have had no choice. We did get some lettuce and spinach planted a couple of weeks ago.

This garden is called “The Patch” and the soil is amazing. Most of the ranch is “gumbo” which is a heavy clay. This location has had tons and tons of organic material and manure added to the sight. Each year, as we clean the corrals, we just lay out another strip about 20 feet wide. We work it in and then plant the following year. The soil is just beautiful. With all the rain we have had, this is the only place that we could work in the soil. The gumbo would have proved impossible.
