This garden is considered a nursery garden in the spring, an extender in the fall and producer in the summer.. last year, we did three different plantings in this big metal raised bed.. it was looking kinda sorry this spring..
It started out as a manure hotbed, and over the past three years has composted its way down over two feet!, so it needed to be cleaned out, weeded, turned, a light sprinkle of hard wood ash added and a full wheel barrel plus load of two year old well turned and composted Pig-cow poo.. So far, its just planted out into green onions and radish at the moment, but this weekend I will add more 🙂
I have one more that does not hold water, that I need to turn into a grow out bed, I was thinking maybe carrots, or try and see just how big fodder beets will grow if they have three feet of clear grow room..
I am unsure how many feet are in the wheel barrel but it filled it by a solid foot when I was done.. This is not the mix, this was soil and it was full, as in heaped, you will see the color difference to the pig-cow compost..
Spring has hit the farm full force, the camera is with me and I have been busy off the farm as well, my head hits the pillow and I am out..
