it happened. i cleared a space in the weeds, i dug in the earth, i saw the earthworms and i put plants in the ground. i watered them and put their little white plastic spikes next to them.
the soil in my raised bed is pretty good, if a little compacted. i dug wide holes and crumbled up the earth so the new plants will have a little breathing room. and i made sure the earthworms were put back around them.
they are so tiny and that bed is so big and weedy.
