Last week we finally got out on Grandaddy's field and began to turn and disc the land. After taking soil samples earlier this winter we were then ready to incorporate the soil amendments. We have just began planting various types of seed potatoes. Hopefully we will get more in the ground this spring. If not, after the dust settles from our move out to the farm we are sure to see a bigger garden come fall.
Taking the old antique family tractor for a ride. Had to remove the cultivator and install the plow on this 1947 beauty. So thankful to still have this tractor for our farm. Plowed the ground for our first official farm garden. Next adventure is to take the results from the soil test and start enriching the soil, plant some veggies and start composting. Heirloom veggie goodness is right around the corner.
