I am gradually turning the beds on the west side of my plot that were seeded with cover crops and layered with manure over the winter. These rich soils will be planted with squashes and corn soon.
The east side of my plot has unammended soils this year. These beds are planted already with lots of roots (carrots, beets, onions, garlic, radish etc). Also peas and fava beans. Soon I will plant beans. I am planning to do a lot with beans this year. I have a seeds for bush green beans and a wonderful variety of Chinese pole beans. One of my favorite beans is soy, for edamame. Last year I failed in growing these because the chipmunks eat the seeds as fast as I could plant them, even when I covered them until they sprouted. This year I will try sprouting at home and transplanting seedlings to my plot.
