How does your garden grow?

Well, the gardens I've put in over the last several years are awesome right now. We've got tulips, daffodils, irises, primrose, colombines, clematis, anemone, foam flower all blooming.

But I've been breaking sod on a new vegetable garden (about 300sq feet) and its slow backbreaking work. Turn the sod, build the planterbox, break up the sod (get the grass out of the dirt), amend the soil (add compost, manure, peat moss, etc), then, finally, you're ready to start planting. Want to finish this week. Writing suffers when I'm physically exhausted. Soon, I promise updates. :)
