the bedrock

dig and turn

mix and rake

like a mason pours the foundation

we prepare ours

elbows deep in dirt and leaves

dig and turn

mix and rake

preparing our foundation

unearthing worms

welcome, working worms

reusing leaves

we scatter seeds so tiny

gently covering

softly tamping

dig, turn, mix, rake

prepare the foundation

the bedrock of our garden
