Two Sections of Winter Garden in the ground

We managed to get 2 sections in the ground as a good start on the winter garden. We planted turnips and cauliflower.

There are 8 rows in each section, at a length of 65 yards.  That's about 200 ft x 8 rows = 1600 feet of plants.  Not as much as we'd like but certainly decent!

We are using the drip-sprout technique... planting with our Hoss Seeder, then lay the drip tape in the track, and let it run frequently for short periods all day. That keeps the soil wet at the top to sprout without overdoing the water.  Hopefully this will help contain the inevitable weeds of a new plot.

Now we wait!
