Since we haven’t been able to meet in person, we’ve been chatting about our gardens on Facebook. Here are a few excerpts shared by our gardeners:
replanting beets and spinach in the last part of summer
We want to succession some lettuce and kale, as we eat these A LOT
I will be doing succession crops of corn and beets
I will be planting succession crops of corn and lettuce, and fall crops will be spinach, broccoli and kale
I’ll be doing a few different succession plantings of radishes, bush beans and greens.
My spring crop of space spinach is going strong! It’s out performing the bloomsdale that I usually plant.
we use compost we make from rabbit poop
We’ve been using the chicken poo when we clean out the coops
I ‘ll use fish emulsion and comfrey nettle compost tea to fertilize
I am making compost, harvesting leaves in the fall.
I applied lots of manure- based compost last spring
We added some coffee grounds, coconut coir, eggshells, compost and the fertilizer we got from high rocks when we tilled the garden.
I dump my ashes from my wood stove on my plot during the winter
I do have a new bug control plan this year-10 red hens and a beautiful rooster!
a little hard work, love and perseverance makes all the difference
