All clear

Freshly tilled section at the north end of the field

The new section at the north end of the garden, all clear after yesterday’s rototilling. The area is 120’x200′, about half an acre. Although it looks light and crumbly after drying for a few hours in a stiff breeze, the clayey soil is pretty heavy and moist. It never really dries out after mid-October or so, it only gets wetter until it freezes… A low cover crop, to winter-kill and then be tilled under in spring, would be great. I’m working on it, and this is the next best thing: no weeds!!
