So looking at what remains of the garden from this year, I start making plans for next year. I want it bigger, I want more separation from grass and garden. I want, I want, I want. We did no till last year, did NOTHING this year, including not weed very much. Next year I might want to try tilling, then woodchips.
We got a chipper, and really all we are waiting on is the poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, virginia creeper, snakes, critters to all GO AWAY/die off for the winter so we can start chipping all the brush that is back there. I could till up the ground, then put the leaves and the wood chips on in the fall. BUT THEN I THINK, what is a better tiller than a pig…or a couple pigs, right?!?!!
A pig pen, where the garden is, have a couple piggies out there, rooting and tilling, fertilizing as they go. It’s not going to happen this year, but maybe one year. Just planning for the future.
