Prepping for Next Season

winterprepBecause of the excessive heat and lack of rain this summer, we are prepping the Veggie-Bed for next season. In this section, legumes and leafy vegetables were grown. Pine needles are applied between the rows, and composted horse manure is applied to the rows of soil. Next spring in this section, fruit-producing vegetables, and root vegetables will be grown. This is part of the Veggie-Bed’s crop rotation system.
