In my new video we take a look at the little row garden:
You can see how patchy it is, but we do still have some radishes coming in. The soil is terrible!
Later in the video, you’ll see Rachel and I work on the NOGRASS grocery row garden beds. Later this week I may be able to borrow a big tractor-operated bed-maker so I am holding out on digging any more new beds before then. The long-term soil work has to start soon, as this ground is really terrible and I do not have an infinite source of cow manure. Yet. One day, we may have a cow, then it’s ON!
For now, I am working on soil-building via plants. Cannas are getting installed as a chop-and-drop right now.
Today it’s very cold out (by my tropical standards) but I hope to film a video where we taste-test some of the crops growing in the 12 amendment test beds.
I needed that laugh today!
How cold is very cold? Hillbilly enquiring minds want to know.
I need to get more garden work done, but days in 40s mean my hands hurt all the time. And my nose runs.
At least I had some excitement. Wind blew chicken yard gate open, woke up to chickens in the garden. They beat up some kale a bit, but mostly shredded my comfrey. It’s over a year old, so decently established, so hope it just means I get a lot of small plants to transplant around.
For whatever reason they ignored the lettuce. They clearly don’t like onions and garlic. 🙂
