Vegetable garden: Starting with spreading manure

It is time to start with our vegetable garden. We cultivate a small vegetable garden every year where we plant tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, watermelons, pumpkins, zucchini, peppers, beans, eggplant, carrots and beets. It is for household consumption, so we don't sell anything... sometimes, we give our friends some tomatoes.

Logically, the first steps are related to soil preparation and after that we have to plant. For this, we spreaded enough manure. Our vegetable garden is absolutely green, so we cannot use other type of fertilizers. This work was funny, but the smell was not very nice. 

Our tomato plants are still not prepared to be transplanted, so we will have to wait few days in order to have our first plants in our vegetable garden....of course, our beans were sowed in December, so we have something of them in our kitchen table.
