Garden Two Months Later

Newly Plowed Garden

I took the above picture right after my brother had plowed on the first day of spring, March 20th. I look at a freshly plowed garden as a blank canvas. I put a lot of planning into where the plants will go to get the best sun or by companion plants. I always find it amazing that every year I carry buckets of rocks out of the garden and every year there are more.  

I have met a lot of people who espouse the wonders of a no-till garden and yet none of them actually have gardens. Tilling the soil is a basic fundamental property of advanced agricultural systems. It’s the reason that ancient people groups all over the world have gods associated with plows. I’m not switching to a no-till garden, but I will wish all of my non-gardener friends luck in their no-till no-garden method. I do allow a strip of grass to grow like a walkway but that is because it keeps my shoes from getting so muddy.
