So. I've been quite busy populating this forum section lately and i hope it's not to the inconvenience of anyone.
So, the current status of the land
is: 5.1ph ex corn and soy. Not cultivated for two years. Next year is number three.
Rototill a part for beds so i can plant garlic this fall.
For the rest of the piece, i was thinking to add lime, composted cow manure and then put a black uv tarp to cook it down (and kill grass and weeds).
I would prepare a bunch of biochar
and charge it, so it would be ready to add in spring time.
I also have the equipment for rameal fragmented wood- a good chipper and sources of fresh twigs.
Thanks for reading and sharing!
Ps: I plan do do biointensive beds in order to grow medicinal
plants and veggies for market and seed
So far, the rototiller doesn't seem to be a good bet as it ... breaks everything up and mixes the weeds in while still doing a superficial job
. Im thibking that i may be faster, on the long run, just forking the beds by hand. Am i crazy?
