Final patch if seeds in the ground

We finally finished the new winter garden patch! Woohoo! Todays chosen crop is rutabagas.

Each of these patches is 8 or 9 rows, 200 feet long. That's about a third of a mile all together, or about 9000 to 10000 plants. Not bad!

In the ground we have about 10,000 plants of each of:


The system we developed this summer works pretty well. This allows us to go from. Plain soil to seeded with drip lines and ready to sprout in about 2 hours per patch. That's with 2 adults working (and some number of children)

Next we can move to the back pasture garden. The patches that held cabbage, melon, beets, and cucumbers are cleaned out, tilled, and almost ready to become a winter garden.
