It's that time of year, I'm going bonkers wanting to get the garden going. Received two boxes of new garden seeds in the mail today, picked up a lot of non-gmo organic seeds. Going to be a loooooooooooong wait for spring here in warm ND!
Last year I fenced off half my garden, 60 x 70 and filled with (12) chickens. They did a number on the weeds and left a poop load (pun intended) of fertilizer. I'm thinking I'm going to let them run the same area one more year then plant heavily with clover for a year. That should provide me with a well dug/fertilized garden. I will then put the chickens in the other half and start over again with that area. I plan on having atleast 30 chickens in that area this year, hope it does not *over* fertilize the soil... LOL I used some chicken fertilizer on the other half of the garden (was aged 2 years) and tilled under quite a bit of leaves/grass and straw, I had a bumper crop. Well, cept the taters, they must not like fertilizer, did not do very well. Had some nice plants, just very few taters over quarter size. Live and learn.
Anyone else have the bug?
