Pumpkins to No Dig Garden

This year’s garden patch started out as hay and pumpkins from the 2015 season, became deep bedding over the winter, grew us pumpkins in 2016, and now is a nicely mulched bed that took only a little bit of weeding to turn into a no-dig garden. It is a lot of work to dig the deep bedding out of the barn and haul it down, long term I’m hoping to have pigs loosen the bedding and oxen haul it, but we’re not quite there yet. Piggies are nearly acclimated to me now, we’ll be moving them onto the deep bedding very soon.
