|Garden weasel from Google images|
The Farm paper work said we are responsible for tilling. I had assumed it would be tilled to start with. No apartment dweller is going to have a rototiller. My dad has one, I used it years ago, not fun. So I'll wait to hear more at the orientation. Hopefully it can be done with a garden weasel. Still, I'm sure I'll be packing advil in my garden bag in the coming months.
Here are some tips from my mom's friend:
- date she starts planting: a neighbor tills the soil for her, usually in May
- compost? no, but she uses a 16-16-16 fertilizer when she plants
- she gets corn seed from her son's nursery, the name of the seed is "Gotta have it"
- she recommends "sweet meat" for winter squash
Their church senior group will tour her son's nursery this spring and they were nice enough to invite me. I'll be going and hopefully I can get some photos along with my plants.
