I have learned some things that I am going to change immediately, such as the size of my rows. Curtis recommends 30" rows for the simple reason that you can straddle them and also its easier to plant, harvest, till, etc. My rows are 4 feet rows - but since I haven't tilled yet - I can make that change. He also recommended tilling once, then adding the compost, but as you will see in the pictures below, I have spread 2-3 inches of compost on the rows. I will need to realign the rows and must rake some compost around. I will have to bypass the first tilling without compost, but will make the change. The rows are 50 feet long. There is probably enough room allowing a 18 inch walkway for 25-28 rows. I probably won't start that many rows. It used to be a horse corral so the soil is fairly decent.
Here are the pictures of the rows. I started tilling but decided to water over the weekend. The tiller wasn't going deep enough and working too hard. As you can see, I will have an audience from the neighboring houses. I owner of the house directly ahead already was standing on this shed, asking what I was doing. so I explained my plan and he seemed excited about it.
