Tilled some beds in the beautifull, warm weather today at the S. Lebanon Gardens. The W. Lebanon Field is really very wet… but should dry out soon enough. The Center Lebanon fields will have to wait a couple of weeks before we plow 4 acres up there… again due to the wet weather. But it IS still early– especially for opening new land. Two acres will be cover cropped two or three times throughout the year for weed and fertility management, and the other two acres will be cover cropped, then put into production. Things like Corn, beans, peas, edemmame, and late crops (winter squashes, pumpkins) will be up there becuase they can be grown in “new land”… whereas other things can’t due to pests that live in sod.
I hope that everyone is enjoying the weekend, and spending some time outside!!!
