What we're up to:

This has been such a mild winter and yet we really can't wait for the warmer weather to come. We have so many plans for this coming season as well as a little change in our production methods. This year we will be moving to an entirely No-till system and we are really excited! We have never used tillage as a consistent field prep for our veggies but we have tilled our front field each season to help suppress weeds. This year we are moving to a completely undisturbed model that is all about blanketing the soil with leaves and compost to suppress weeds and feed the soil rather than tilling and composting. We are hoping this does a few things for us: 1) less work and time weeding and flipping beds. 2) improves soil health and organic matter without a huge additional cost. 3) greatly increases the biodiversity in our soil for healthy and tastier food. For more information about this no-till method, check out Daniel Mays book The No-Till Organic Vegetable Farm
