Our summer market garden is finally prepped! We can begin planting as soon as we finish laying the irrigation line this week. There will be lots of good stuff going in here over the next few weeks, including beets, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, squash, melons, and flowers! Here are some pictures of the market garden preparation process for those of you who are interested.
In early April, we tarped the 100′ x 40′ plot to prevent weeds and keep the heavy spring rains off of the soil.
We took the tarp off a few weeks ago to let the soil warm up. On Wednesday, we tilled the plot, then used this nifty bed former attachment to build the raised garden beds.
Here’s the finished product!
