My wife Savannah and I have got one foot in the door on farming and are looking at everything we can. Your channel has so much good stuff! Mostly view on youtube..
Your comments are off, saw that video, and your website says you are too busy to answer questions about farming.
You seem like someone really interested in helping people so i thought i’d reach out.
Maybe even if you just direct me to the best information sources for my garden set up it would help! Theres so much info out there..
We’re looking at anything and everything including JM, Elliot, youtube, and our 1 organic farmer at our Saturday market.
All that and i have one question:
Your video: lawn -> farm, says mark weeds on map, solarize over winter, dig out remaining white weeds in spring, till, make beds. You said yourself you dont tackle beautiful lush lawns.
We started by removing sod in shape of our hopeful garden. Now what? Solarize dirt? Put in amendments then solarize for 2-4 weeks? Make beds? Test soil?
We’re zone 7, Northern Va. lots of clay about 4inches below dug out sod.
You can see setup in video.
I am in this for the long haul and don’t have another job. This is moms backyard before we get a yard ourselves. Just want to start it right, even if i removed sod prematurely.
I am highly motivated and hopefully from video you can see, ready to work.
Any and all advice welcome!
Thank you for so much awesome content already! Looking into website membership.
Apologies for long winded email but there’s a lot to cover.
