Preparing for more rows
I am preparing for 3 more rows. We measured out the rows. They are 50 feet long and 3 feet wide with a 22 inch walkway. We are spreading out a thick layer of compost that will be tilled into the existing soil. The existing soil has a lot of clay, so the compost will add organic material and improve drainage. Here are some pictures of the rows and my part time helper - Dominique dumping compost. There will be 20 rows along the back wall when we are finished and room for 3 or 4 100 foot rows where I am standing to take the pictures. The corral is about 1/4th of an acre so I can grow a lot of vegetables in that space.
