Spanish Roja - a Rocambole
Simonetti - an Artichoke
look at that beautiful toffee marbling!
Various varieties in netting
And then today, Thurs, 10/6/11, after 6 years of planning and 5 years of farm ownership, we finally planted a crop! (I'm not counting the farm garden which was for personal use.)
Field #1 - before planting
tools include clipboard, tapemeasure, scale
(even our lumber is local!)
Dibbler in Action!
3 rows / bed. 39" wide bed. 12" between rows. 8" between plants.
Planting on the grid - it makes life easier!
We each have carpenter's aprons to carry the cloves down the rows
