spring planting

Spring field preparations.
Before


And after the ploughing. The field hadn't done much for many years and so was full of weeds, Kikuyu and sour fig. We rented a small Massey Ferguson from an old local and turned the weeds in. Luckily the kikuyu is not everywhere.
Next is some special soil work- humic acid, weed tea, worm tea and lime. All in and followed hotly by sweetcorn seed and pumpkin seedlings. I am very excited to see how this first big planting on this farm goes.
