Spring Garden – Getting Started

Today was a beautiful Spring Day!  I felt inspired to plant cabbage, lettuce, and bok choy seeds in the biggest garden bed.

I pulled out the winter cover crop (fava beans) and exposed the rich organic soil. I churned the soil and sowed the seeds which took no time at all.


I emptied two trays of worm casting and then covered the worms with some leftover shavings from the apple tree scions.  What better way to reuse!

Lastly, I covered the soil with the straw and cut fava beans.   The seeds packets were dated, covered in plastic, and screwed into the locust.


I’ve got a 5 gallon bucket of liquid, worm castings tea percolating for 24 hours and will be sprayed in the garden.


This is just the start, I’m getting a jump on the seed planting this year.
