2016 season begins

second year of no-till.  pleasantly surprised that it results in less work and even better - successful plants.  weed mgt during the off season with a weed torch helps stay ahead of any issues.  i would think folks with a heavy clay type soil that benefit from working in organic matter, might feel differently - but us fluffy store bought soil guys can actually make no-till a way of life.

4 beds had their soil level augmented with a multitude of g&b chicken fert bags and the first four tomatoes went into the ground on 4/26.  4 more plants will hit the dirt in a few weeks when they get bigger.

on deck for the tomatoville mudhens:  cherokee purple, black zebra, celebrity and super fantastic!
