This February I put a good dent in the planting – got 3/4 the way done with my dry beans, thanks to the help of my kids. So far I have ~6000 beans in the ground – Kidney, Black, Pinto, and white. Still have about ~3000 more beans to get in the ground before I can get started on the March planting.
The front yard garden is looking a bit shabby, I plan on ordering 2-3 yards of soil tomorrow and rejuvenate it for planting. I am hoping to move all my Collards, Kale, Cabbage, Spinach, etc to the front yard garden where it will get filtered light from the small front yard orchard. The plants I put there last year did well despite the poor soil and conditions so I expect with good soil and better conditions they should flourish. I also plan on getting lot’s of colorful flowers started in the front yard for my little pollinator friends and I will have a pollinator sanctuary sign made and posted this year.
Should be an exciting and very green planting season, I will continue developing my minimal effort gardening techniques – you’ll learn more about these practices as I post more on the garden.
