View from the north end of the field

A view from the north end of the market garden field, the reverse angle of a couple of days ago and a relatively rare perspective for me. Although the crops are on a 7-year rotation that marches them from here towards the barn, I still tend to spend more time down around the greenhouse-Milkhouse end, no matter what’s growing where. Today, I’m once again checking things out as fall clean-up proceeds in pieces. The nearest section is the new addition, recently cleared of squash, pumpkins, cucumbers and melons, and the raccoon-fated corn just out of sight on the left. After one season, it’s a little overgrown with grass, but not bad. Next year, this will be beans!


One thought on “View from the other end”

  1. (Not sure that my blog software is doing trackbacks properly, so…) I was intrigued by your mention that “crops are on a 7-year rotation”. You’re the only person apart from myself that I’ve ever heard of using such a long rotation scheme, wondered what your scheme is, and decided to describe my own 7-year rotation scheme along with some of the reasoning. I would love to compare and contrast! ;-)
