Freshly Tilled and Ready for Fall Planting

This is my garden spot.  It's 100' x 65' in size.  Over the last few weeks I've cleaned all the summer growth out, pulled the tomato stakes, etc.  Today I spread (about) a ton of compost and tilled it in, making the soil rich and dark.  I'll let the ground rest for a few weeks, then will till one more time after adding lime.  Next I will build rows (raised beds) with furrows down the center for planting.

Planting of fall vegetables begins next month (about mid September):  Collards, Turnips, Kale, Carrots, Broccoli, Cabbage, Green Onion (bunching), and maybe Potatoes.  

Very excited.

PS - At the upper end of the garden you'll see my row of blueberry bushes and muscadine vine on a trellis.  We harvested a lot of blueberries this seaon, but not so good with the grapes.
