Breaking New Ground

Jonah tried his hand at plowing today, turning over about 1/4 acre using a borrowed, beat-up, 2-bottom moldboard plow. We are philisophically “no till” folks and have had good success with intesive mulching to establish small areas. For these larger areas our plan is to plow once and then go to permanent raised beds with lots of mulch for maintenance and fertility. Leah was working on hand digging the garlic beds in preparation for tomorrow’s planting.
