Sow easy

The season begins and ends in the raised beds. We have learned long ago that the safest most easily controlled growth takes place in our raised beds. These miniature square foot gardens allow better drainage, access for weeding, easy ability to amend the soil, grow cloth covering and watering. Our small Mantis tiller fits neatly inside them and we can replant readily with little effort.

We planted garlic in the fall and it is springing forth as the soil warms. We have used the Mantis in the remaining beds and have seeded some with one of four varieties of Swiss Chard we will be growing! The rich soil speeds along the whole process and the raised beds make seeding a snap.
