New for 2020 will be raised garden beds. Here's a picture of phase one of the project I'm beginning on my winter vacation.
My plan is to place a mirror bed on the other side of the yard (I'm thinking of doing a 4' width rather than 6' on the other side) with two 4'x12' beds in between the two large ones.
My father in law is planning on coming over after I finish building the beds to help haul compost to fill the beds.
I'm also planning on building some cold frames to begin lettuce, spinach, and other salad crops in for March. Since tomorrow is winter solctice (the shortest day of the year), I plan on doing a bit of winter sowing to experiment.
I'll also be experimenting with Craig Lahouiller's tight germination method with the many heirloom Rutgers I have. I want to see how it works and I have a ton of seed to spare.
These projects are such a valuable thing for me to have as I minister to people and churches in Kentucky. I have a friend who is building a motorcycle on his day off. This is what I do. It helps me get my mind onto something else for a little bit AND I get to see the literal fruits of my labors.
Stay tuned for parts 2 and more!
