I built a raised bed and trans planted strawberries. I have a bag garden and am in the middle of renewing the mulch. When I am finished I'll post a photo. The bag method work great for rocky soil and almost no weeds. Pass two years with a bumper crop!

Re: Tilled the garden today

Tilled up my yard to start a new garden yesterday. Wasn't bad tilling the yard. It became difficult after I added a heaping truckload of leaf compost, and half a load of rabbit manure. Then went to till all that together. Too wet and kept plugging. But with a little bullwork of pushing like heck, stopping backing up, pulling crap out underneath, its all mixed.
Sure looks great, and now it can rest until I plant.

Yep, my ground is too wet as well.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Tilled the garden today

Be a little while before I could till it's too wet. Looking forward to it though! I ordered Ancho seed, Caballero seed, beet seed, and bean seed the other day and I'm still waiting on them to arrive. When do you guys start planting your seeds for transplants?

Experience the Xtreme!

I'm all raised beds. Probably work in some compost this week and get the collards, broccoli, spinach etc. planted soon.

Re: Tilled the garden today

I covered my garden with 2 inches of sand last fall because I wanted the soil to loosen up. Turned a shovel full over on Sunday, still far too wet. Hit a frozen patch down 5 inches as well. I normally can't till it until about the last week of March anyway. This year I'll plow it first, to help work the sand in.
