Farm Update

Two weeks ago I got the field with the rye grass plowed under. Waited two weeks for that to settle down. To my surprise there was very little weed sproutiness.

Yesterday I got working at getting the extra wide 4 foot wide raised beds put in, the walkways were newspapered and mulched with straw. Also got in the carrots, onions, potatoes, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.

It is raining today so nothing else got done.

Next up is a row of spinach, beets, peas, and the lettuces. Then we start building the trellises for the beans, peas, and cukes.

My problem is, I planned to show the stages of the field, but never have in my mind to bring the camera when I go to work there.


I will get some pics up soon and let you see how the thing is progressing. I hope to get over there tomorrow or Wednesday depending on the rain.
