Garden Plans > 2018: Vegetable Spring Garden

About this Garden Plan

After a year break we are growing again! Although we have tried in the past, our clay soil was a bit heavy and yield was poor. Additionallyl, the grasshoppers were our competitors. We are investing in amending the soil this year and being more proactive in pest control.
