I’m so ready for Spring, even though I didn’t get my snow again this winter. Oh, I know! Everyone else got GOBS of snow, and it missed us every time! So today, we put that all behind us and start preparing GARDEN 2017 at Morter Farm. Usually we wait until St. Patrick’s Day to put in the potatoes, but not this year!
We’ve been watching videos on YouTube, learning new ways to plant for bigger yields and LESS WEEDS! Also, the no-till method of gardening. So, Farmer Ted knifed in some gypsum and then spread manure across the top of the first half and raked it smooth. He’ll do the same with the other half this weekend.
Izabella (the Labrador) absolutely LOVES helping with any project. She also loves potatoes, and steals them regularly from the pantry. She found the “mother load” here in the garden, and before I realized it we had some blank spots in the rows! Oh well, perfection in a garden is a unicorn anyway!
