nah...I'd have to charge too much for them. I'm not set up for any kind of production like that. Turning small items on the lathe I can do without any trouble. I do make garden dibbers for planting.

I put some shredded leaves on the garden last fall and tilled them in. Today I'll till them again and grab a few worms.

I put in an order with Gurneys earlier, received all my seeds, onion set and seed potatoes will be coming later...

I have all my seeds and seed potatoes. I won't start anything until the last week of April. The radishes in the trough planter are coming on a bit slow but starting to show true leaves. Temps in the box hit the high 90s yesterday and the piston that opens the lid for ventilation was working like a charm. I don't think the soil temperature was quite that high. I haven't buried the probe as yet. It's just in a plastic bag on the surface. I'm sure it gets 10-15* hotter than the soil.

My neighbor gifted me some 2x6 and 2x8 to finish extending 2 of my beds that I altered. I'll probably get around to that in the next week or so.

No sign of asparagus yet, but my garlic is growing nicely. Deer or rabbits browsed off some of my tulips so I put down some Repelsall to deter the buggers.
Hostas and plantains are poking through and my bleeding heart is 1' tall now.

It's all getting there.

Not much better than home grown asparagus. I added about 4" of good soil to top off my bed a few weeks ago so I'm sure it'll take a bit longer for mine to show.

Enjoy!

I got the garden all tilled up. Still going to be quite a long time before I can plant anything other than some peas. The rhubarb is coming up.

Beekeeper1099, I like that electric fence, I have to do the same. I have been parking my truck right next to and pointed towards the garden when the corn is near ready. Being up in age I get up two or three time a night, I hit the panic button.  ;D

Tilled the garden a couple of days ago. Today I tossed the compost from one bin to another and took care of the chickens. I ordered a few things...

Looks like you have a nice piece of ground Bart. My wife wants chickens... I suppose I need to get building a coup. If i didn't have the electric fence the rabbits and deer eat pretty good. Lol

My ground is really dense. I've put compost and leaves to lighten the soil but I have more of a rock garden than I would like. I have trouble with root vegetables growing up out of the ground instead of down. I may end up with raised bed setup so I can do potatoes.

Chickens are great pets. They provide eggs, compost and fertilizer too! My small garden is a little on the rocky side but doesn't hurt production...

This is early last year. But had a good year. I would love to plant potatoes. My grandparents had a 4 acre garden. They grew the best potatoes
