Wheel-hoeing (in the garlic, because it's too high to cultivate):
Fixing irrigation boxes from sunken mud-filled pits like this:
To nice accessible boxes like this:
I cultivated the peas with the Basket-Weeder.
Laying down frost-cloth (Remay) to protect from frost & insect damage:
Uncovering Remay to cultivate & weed underneath:
Weeding carrots & greens on hands & knees:
And planting stuff! Look at these onions, ready to go in the ground!
We also planted spinach & some lettuce with the big whompin' transplanter. Onions plant really well with it, but lots of spinach plants go in sideways, upside-down, & get clogged in the machine because of their big leaves. Still a lot faster than if we planted by hand.
