Finishing up the last row on another plot. Lots of shoveling. Still have to rake out excess grasses, amend soil and final prep like cutting the edge for weed mat etc. Yeah it's "a lot of work" but, you only do it once! Sitting in traffic is more work than this. #permanentbeds #marketgarden #smallscalefarming

Consider this the “before” picture! Our permanent beds are going in at the new farm! We’re getting ready for a fall planting of perennial plants 🌱💗☀️ oh, and that is burlap we’re using this year to suppress any weed growth and have awesome new irrigation that’s great with low pressure and sand! . . . #permaculture #sustainableagriculture #firstgenerationfarmers #grower #plantmagic #foodismedicine #farmlyfe #organicfarming #blueskies #burlap #permanentbeds #nwbloom #ecological

9 new beds in the making this morning for autumn plantings. Already at 7:30am it was too warm. Right now it’s 35°C and I’m done farming for the day. The center of each bed’s soil remain untouched by the rotary plow to preserve its precious structure for the future no till practices. As Sundays are quiet days in Switzerland, one aren’t allowed to disturb the neighbors with machines, so I’ll continue working on the beds on Monday; broadforking, power harrowing, raking, compost and wood chips spreading. It will take some time. Goal is to have them ready in two weeks. Running a #onewomanshow can be daunting when working on infrastructure alone. I keep reminding myself that the effort put into this will repay itself in the coming years with abundant harvests and a good soil full of life.

The season is progressing so fast I have not taken a single picture to update you all on our lawn to market garden conversion, well wait no longer... These are some of my successes but believe me there have been some serious failures as well. Learning has been so fun and soooo much work. #foodnotlawns #marketgarden #groworganic #liveorganic #thriveorganic #organic #organicfoodsource #urbanfarmer #urbanfarming #permanentbeds #notill #regenerativeag #regenerativeagriculture #sustainable #sustainablefarming #sustainablelife #liveyourbestlife #dowhatdrivesyou #passionforlife #whitecitysk

Qui dit maraîchage bio dit grelinette, même ici au Japon sur au Potager des Cerfs ... En train d’attaquer des nouvelles planches : aérer et ammeublir le sol, briser les racines des mauvaises herbes ... / フランス人風の有機農業と言えば、この農具:Grelinetteは、土壌を優しく、深く、微生物などを殺さないで、上と下の土を混ぜないで耕してくれる最高のツールです/ The broadfork, impossible to imagine organic market gardening without one... #lepotagerdescerfs #farminginjapan #broadfork #grelinette #permanentbeds #notill #nodig #nagano #shinshu #saku #mochizuki #kasuga #organicmarketgardening #permaculturemarketgardening #permaculture #ルポタジェデセル #フレンチファーム #無農薬 #不耕起栽培 #有機農業 #フランス野菜 #長野 #佐久 #望月 #春日

Last year, we made the transition to permanent no-till beds. At the end of the season, we spread composted manure and amendments on our raised beds and then covered them with a layer of leaf mulch for the winter. On the left, you can see a bed with remaining leaf mulch. In the center are the leaves raked off the bed on the right. This bed has been broad-forked and twice-raked (once with a wide-tooth rake to break up clumps and remove any rocks, and once with a fine-tooth rake to smooth the surface). In less than 10 minutes, our beds are beautiful and ready to plant in without the use of a tractor or any machinery! Obviously, this is only feasible for our size, but we are happy to be farming in a simpler, more sustainable way. . . #smallfarms #mainefarms #csafarm #sustainablefarming #soil #permanentbeds #broadfork #notillfarming #supportyoungfarmers #eatgoodfood #supportlocalagriculture #maineflowers

Thank goodness for the day when we realize we don’t have to do it all alone 💚 grateful for my new friend (and future urban farmer??) Anthony 🙌🏽 helping me double dig these tomato, pepper, and eggplant beds 🍅 🌶🍆 . . P.S. looking for advice on how to turn under this cereal rye cover crop which hasn’t gone to seed head yet 🤔 . . . #urbanag #urbanfarm #eastorange #eonj #urbanfarmers #urbanpermaculture #notill #permanentbeds #tomatoes #futurefood #iamamodernfarmer #isitdoneyet #itneverends #motivation #urbangarden

Potato harvest from a lasagna nodig bed - 33kg harvest from 30 plants, thats about 1,1kg per plant. It's an early variety (Augusta), planted on 08.05 and harvested 3 month later. The nodig bed is made of three layers on top of the grass - brown leaves, old compost, brown leaves. #nodig #permanentbeds #potatoes #compost #healthysoil

When you tease your boo for years for liking round houses saying it was too hippie (and who makes round furniture anyway) and then you finally start planning your forever garden and you realize straight rows will just funnel torrents of water down the paths so you toss your hands up and say 'fine! Circle garden!' and then he starts to hate it because doing tow planning in arcs is like whaaaa and then you finally start building the beds and it actually looks like the coolest thing in the world and works really well to retain moisture and isn't that confusing at all. Yeah. #yeahthat #circlegarden #learningtogether #greenhorns #permanentbeds #finallyhome #weddingfeast #sightunseen

This dep house is getting run without plastic because it collapsed last year in September during a gnarly rainstorm. It has an external tarp kit and it filled with water while it was open during the day. 🤦‍♂️Even though the greenhouse was brand new bought in march, the company couldn't provide us with replacement hoops (12). Apparently they changed the design and couldn't help out unless I sent them a good hoop back down to California to have them recreate. All at a generous markup because it was "custom". So we took the remaining hoops, spread them out and hooked it all back together. We could have sourced someone locally but we decided to work with what we have. This gets planted soon and the tarp/ endwall plastic will go up when we flip it. Learn from my mistake and buy quality from a reputable company. #permanentbeds #terrior #integround #greenhouse #lightdep #i502 #washingtonsungrown #whatcomcounty #bellingham #familyfarm

Getting close to done on these big beds. Today we're trying to get them all mulched with straw and seed mix. Then we'll give them them a nice soaking this evening to get the soil life back into action after getting kinda dried out. Can't wait for these to be rolling hills of green mulch and cannabis from seed! Much respect to my crew @alexmillerauto , @davidisdreaming and Delia for working through these hot days. Yesterday was tough, we moved 40 yards of compost onto beds with wheelbarrows then went to the neighbor and picked up and unloaded 75 bales of hay in 80* weather. 🤘🙏💪💪💪💪💪 #eagletrees #teamwork #familyfarm #whatcomcounty #washingtonsungrown #i502 #integround #terrior #beyondorganic #permanentbeds
