We've been so busy I forgot to update on 2 weeks ago progress.

Garden beds are getting dug out.
Cam rented a tiller and broke up all the rocks and clay so it would be easier to dig out the beds and prep them. I am using lots of native soil. Which is basically just clay and adding peat moss and compost to break it up.
We planted asparagus roots this year and they are coming up. We won't be able to harvest any until next year.

Here I tilled up that hairy vetch. It doesn't look like it now that it's dry, but the soil has become really nice in these beds.

The Seasonal Homestead
Nice to meet you!
