Breaking New Ground

David worked up five 80′ rows in our new growing area.

The plan is to leave the grass between the crops. In the fall the exposed rows will be sown in rye and the grass rows will be turned and sown with a legume cover crop, which will be turned under next spring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

David put in nine 30′ rows of onions in bed B and worked up three rows in the back garden.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He also put in a small bed for turnips and beets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turing the compost pile was also on his agenda.

David finished fixing the tiller.

He started to work up the area were tunnel B was and is  incorporating  it into the area next to it, enlarging our new B patch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These seedlings have been waiting to be planted out but the weather has delayed that. They will be going into the ground shortly.
