We’re excited to have glorious weather for our fall onion & garlic transplanting this year! Last year (2018) was a real struggle with all of the rain. This year it’s been smooth sailing!!!!
An enormous amount of work and preparation goes into planning where each crop will go. For instance the field where we are planting the alliums this fall, had the chickens on it for a few months earlier this spring. Then it was planted to a cover crop of Buckwheat & Sorghum Sudan Grass for most of the summer months. Once those got turned in to the soil and started to decompose we were able to get the beds prepped and ready for planting the allium crops. It’s now the third week of October and we are finally getting these crops in the ground!
WOW… that’s a lot of planning & preparation!!!
