The Manure Maneuver May 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — gardenerq @ 4:12 PM

The 3rd layer is steer manure and blood & bone meal. As you can see, there are 2 narrow footpaths that are lined with straw.  The bed dimensions and order of the layers that I’m putting down are from Jonathan White’s Food4Wealth plan .  The vegie beds go East-West and I will plant taller crops on the North end. I’ve dabbled with various plant spacing ideas over the years and I think I’ll use John Jeavons’ Grow Biointensive method for these beds.

I’m still trying to figure out a way to post multiple pictures from my phone in one post. I’m still at a loss.

Regarding this picture, I was working on one section at a time. My square bed will be divided into three equal beds by footpaths.
