We started prepping and planting on April 2nd. It’s now a month later and we are still standing, though weary with fatigue and rough, calloused hands. The hard work has resulted in 20 beds (30′ x 25″) planted using the SPIN method. There is also an area of onions and potatoes that has been planted and will tie up that area of the farm for quite some time. We still have concern about our soil….lots of clay and still many rocks in the ground.
Can plants grow in clay and gravel? I guess we will find out! Despite this, the rows appear to be growing. A few more days like today and the veggies should thrive! Almost two months until our first market, so we will need to find other buyers in the interim. Interested? Check out our CSA!
