Byron tilled the rows and we promptly raked in mounds of well-composted horse manure Byron got from a colleague at work. Note that cow manure is usually the excrement of choice for gardening, since cows have those handy double stomachs that help break down weed seeds, but horse manure composted as well as this stuff was will work, too.
|Byron used a rotor tiller to dig the rows while Charlie contemplated the cosmos.|
|The beginnings of our berry rows.|
|Transplanted blackberry, before I cut it down.|
|The transplants will look like sticks when you trim them, but that's normal! I did this with the raspberries, too.|
|Not all transplants will have one neat root...this one had three runners!|
|To transplant: dig hole. Place plant & its dirt in hole. Cover. Water.|
