Garden preparations

With this wonderful daily weather - also called "sucker weather" - we get the itch to plant our garden. Instead we are building out the infrastructure so when it is time to plant we are ready to go. Raised beds built and laid out, an arbor for entry into the garden and a picket fence to separate the garden from the rest of the world. Drip lines are being laid out and connected up - our goal is not to have to hand water anything on a regular basis. The plants and us do better with routine watering.
Diana is attending the Master Gardener courses in Tooele and getting more information about how to handle the alkaline and saline soil that we have. This is fun.  Of course, garlic is coming up and the arugula should sprout soon - can't not plant anything :-) !
