Good Dirt

This is when brown is a beautiful color.
It was a bit muddy on one end of the field, but the garden is tilled and manure spread.
The aged manure that was about three months old or older, got carried to the garden with the loader and turned in twice. The dirt looks good.
I hope we are remedying some of the clay.
We also rebuilt some of the raised beds and filled them with the dirt that was under the manure. They are going to be wonderful.
And the cold frame is repaired and ready for plants. With snow in the forecast again I may be using it a while.
I'm ready to dig.
