Well things on the farm have been interesting. Weeds managed to take all of my beds over. This is what happens when you till and don’t pull all the weeds out before planting. So I started with a bed 40×15 and plowed it by hand and raked all of the weeds out. In that small area I planted corn, 15 tomatoes, 8 squash plants, lots of green beans, swiss chard, and cucumbers. This is my own version of a cross between square foot gardening and french intensive method. The ability to grow lots of veggies in a small area. I figure that I can plant a 1/4 acre and grow more than what I would have with an acre using this method. So I am going to keep detailed records to see how that works out. Today and yesterday I added walk ways and expanded the beds. I am continuing with planting more corn but I have added okra into the mix. Tomorrow I’m going to expand more and plant more squash, green beans, and cucumbers. I also have started pepper plants with the goal of growing about 50 of them. Different varieties but a lot of an ornamental variety that produces a nice small hot pepper. I’m going to use these peppers like a Tabasco pepper and make hot sauce out of them. I can’t wait for them to be harvested. I will post some pictures and videos tomorrow to show the progress. If you have suggestions or a good hot sauce recipe just leave it in the comments. Tomorrow I will win the war against the weeds.
