    How Does your Garden Grow? ~ Summer 2019 Edition

    Well, I have two tomato plants planted in one raised bed, and nothing else because it never stops raining long enough for things to dry out enough to plant. At what point do I just plant the seeds in the wet soil and hope for the best? How wet is too wet for planting?

    Great garden this year!

    As some of you know, I use the Back to Eden method of farming and have turned my red clay into a black, rich and loamy soil. Over the winter I amended my corn plot with the chicken manure everytime I cleaned the chicken coop. Well my corn has outdone itself so far! So has the garlic.
