garden is exploding!

Sugar snaps need support, so as they get taller you can train them to grab onto your twine, and they handle the rest for the next 5 weeks. Posts get pounded down with a...post pounder.

Alongside the sugar snaps are some mustard greens. The big grassy patch in the foreground is winter rye and vetch that I cover cropped over some soggy clay soil.

Jim came over with a bobcat and tilling implement and tilled the rest of the soil. Thanks Jim!
Things are really growing over here. Can you believe that within this picture are mustard greens, carrots, sugar snaps, 3 kinds of kale, swiss chard, spinach, corn, tomatoes, zuchini, cilantro, radishes, pole beans, leeks, & sunflowers!
