I asked landlady for a little ground for a couple tomatoes, and she gave us a patch of dirt the size of a queen-sized bed.
We've gotten a pitchfork, a rake, and a funny-looking tool (the last two free), manure, peat moss, and weedcloth.
We've gotten 2 tomato plants, 4 different kinds of pepper plant, strawberries, parsley, and purple basil. I can't find my turnip green seeds, though. :-/
We've turned over the ground, dug out maybe half of the rocks, turned in the peat & the manure, and covered it with ground cloth. Tomorrow, we'll plant the plants.
