Back to Ground Gardening with raised rows…

I couldn’t keep the “Yard Chickens” from eating the young plants we grew in the raised “Bucket Garden” so I decided to go back to raised rows with a fence around the garden to keep those veggie destroyers out.  I ’tilled in a generous amount of chicken & goose manure that I scooped off the ground around the chicken coops.  For years, to keep the mud down I would layer the leaves I raked up on the grounds around the coops.  The geese would stomp it, the chickens would dig in it, the rain would wet it, repeat. This made a nice, rich soil mixture.  The plants seem to love it!



The Assortment includes:

Radishes, 30 ft row of Green Beans, Red & Yellow onions, Carrots, Brussel Sprouts, Cucumbers, Roma Tomatoes, Better Boy Tomatoes, Romain Lettuce, Lima Bean (one plant), Asparagus, Horseradish root, Blueberries, Red Raspberries, Black Berries, Concord Grapes and the trees in the far back are Mulberry.
