Preparing and planting on our muck land
Yesterday and today we got some planting done on our rented piece of muck land. First, I used the big New Holland tractor to Chisel Plow the ground, then the small New Holland tractor to rototill the ground. Then I marked the rows and we planted about 3800 sweet onion transplants, 250 scallion and pearl onion transplants, 200 lettuces, and direct seeded spinach, arugula, turnips and radishes. It was really nice to be able to plant without dealing with any stones, unlike our sandy loam ground. Muck is excellent for growing onions, spinach, carrots, lettuce, celery, etc., so I'm very excited to see the yields.
