I planted a winter crop of greens,here in the south part of good ole George,. we can grow three to four crops a year.i do most of it all by my self,we use our chicken and rabbit droppings along with home made compost.everything works out real good untill we get too much of the liquid sunshine.but is still a good thing .ANGELA

First thing I had to do was remove the "bane of my existence", I had a Black Walnut tree in the garden, and it was reeking havoc on my crop rotation! Hated to do it, but got it cut down, as well as some other crazy tree that was sucking up all of my irrigation. Looking forward to getting things started! Going to build a shed, and attach a greenhouse to it as well! Check out the blog (little behind, but getting ready to get started again!) vegetableherder.blogspot.com
