Our greenhouse blew down this year so we had a tough time getting started so we ended up planting seeds directly into the ground this year and now things are starting to pop up.
Its been a late start but we’re getting good rain this year, we use Straw to cover the plants for weed suppression and also to help with water retention. It also adds organic matter once it breaks down.
We planted in Organic compost since the garden plot has not been able to sustain plants without it since the soil is lacking vital nutrients. This method works well as we can do row, raised beds, and spot plant vegetables.
