Michael brought certified WEED FREE straw! What? Yes, he did. Last year I just used old straw I had around here. He planted the left side of this potato patch in mounds. I used the Ruth Stott method and planted the rest of this spot.
The orange fence is the area we are letting the chickens till for us. We shall see if they can keep it under control. We have more potatoes to plant so I'll stick them in the other little section Michael tilled. I guess we aren't doing EVERYTHING in beds this year after all.
