Let it be Spring already!

We started planting some of the produce, started by installing trenches filled with wood (Kugelcultur). The best place to store water is underground. The best soil will have lots of organic material. Made sence to me.

We started preparing some of the raised garden beds. We created a raised soil bed with a dirt basin with natural overflow, the intent is to store 2″ to 3″ water in a dirt bowl. Filled with twigs, leaves, grass and a few scoops of compost at the bottom of our grow beds. Then added our own soil mixture 50% soil and 50% ground wood chips.

Now adding the onions and we are almost ready to add some hay for freeze protection.

320 onions later
Now we are going tractor trucking, on our newest and coolest.
