Getting Fit @ 61-Day 396

New Garden Plot

I’ve been reading about “no-till gardening” and want to give it a try.  Some vegetables like corn and squash take more room than I can allow in my small raised bed gardens.  In preparation for a garden plot next summer, I’ve covered a square of ground with a thick layer of cardboard and newspaper, then a 6-inch layer of hay mulch to kill the grass.  Next spring I will dig holes for my plants, add compost and more mulch; so this is a very long-term project and it remains to be seen how it will turn out…
