You've given me an idea---- I have a couple of beaten up big round bale feeders, ( bulls play rough!) that I can "upcycle" into raised garden beds. I can fill them with old straw, top off with good garden dirt and plant away. Now spring can't come too soon---- Thank you!

That's a good idea!

Harvested the last of the radishes and cut the tops out of the turnip greens. I'm done until spring (If I find a place with some land for a garden).

The move fell through again I'm tired of worry about it time to plow some soil. I going to try to get most done tomorrow if the sears stay going.

First picture is of the watermelon patch and the second is one of the gardens. Still lots more to do.

This is odd! I was going to edit your pics and when I hit the save button, they both turned the right direction. Never had that before. Hope some one else tries that to see if it works for them.

I'm having a hard time plowing new ground for the corn. I try my moldboard first and then I tried the potato plow.

Has this ground been plowed/worked before? I saw something in the 1650 video that looked like new sod being turned under!

You can see a tiny corner of it in the video. It never been turned but the watermelon patch got turned last year but it took several times of plowing and disking.

Here is me trying with the potato plow. The video isn't very good but I was trying to hold the camera and plow.

Makes me envious! I have "farmer's fever" bad, but two feet of snow and -30C. prevent digging, lol. My houseplants are quaking in their pots when I look at them!
