Uhhh.....she was way off. We needed about half that much. We spent (mostly TL) the rest of the morning filling the garden box, and looking for other places to put the extra 2 ton of dirt. So now we have enough dirt to fill another box........(where, I don't know)
Aaand....if you live in the frozen north...NOW is the time to start planning your garden. I tried out these new greens this year and they are DELISH! It is a mesclun mix, and it's kind of nutty, spicy and YUMMY. It looks different than the leaf lettuce and you might think it looks like weeds, but it is really good and something good to mix into the salad bowl.
If you live in the sunny Southwest, it may be getting a little late to plant this, unless you go RIGHT NOW to the garden center and plant the seeds RIGHT NOW. Once it gets hot, forgetaboutit. They grow but they taste bitter.
