The garden is doing well. long term food production is a must to survive the future! It is alot of work especially in my no fossil fuel garden.
To see how much work it would be the family and I put in a 3/4 acre food garden all by hand. Meaning no gas for the roto tiller. Turning the ground up with a shovel was not fun. Everything is going well. We may have to use some bug spray.
I feel that by adding organics the soil will loosen making it easier next year.
