This Garden was a filed of weeds and grass at the beginning of last year. i tilled it in the late winter with a reverse tine tiller and added 40 pounds of all purpose organic fertilizer, and 80 pounds of organic high calcium lime. I grew 3 varieties of lettuces, 2 of carrots, chiogga beets and forono beets. i added in early summer romano bean and yellow wax beans. also 7 types of heirloom tomatoes, 4 types of swete peppers, including my favorite.. the "corno Di Toro" awesome huge plants and peppers!! i grew a block of "peaches and Cream" sweet corn and watermelons. My only Failure was my pumpkins, which i started two weeks too late and the vine borers go to and ate!! This year i added 2 inches of leaf mulch and tilled it in. i currently have a late cover crop of Crimson clover and a patch of hairy vetch mixed with rye for the later crops. i have began composting my load of leaf mulch with old produce for some good green matter and a late season top dressing for the soil. will be starting seed in a gren house shortly and getting this years soil sample started. Here's to a great season!!
photos to follow once i figure it out.[/img]

It's lovely to see you starting a blog Todd. I take it you are an organic gardener then? I have been totally organic for over twenty years and would never dream of using chemicals. Looking forward to seeing your photographs as your crops sound amazing.
Welcome Todd. I see you are in NC. Are you doing all this planting now when you have sleet storms headed your way? Glad to see you are organic. I have been as well for years and years.
