This is part of my main garden space. We are looking North with Runningwater Draw in the background. I’ll have to clear alot of the weeds that have sprouted, using a yo-yo, Cool Hand Luke style! We’ve had several inches of rain in the past few weeks and I don’t want to disturb my moisture.
I’ve seen quite a few farmer plowing their ground in preparation for cotton planting. It was 102 degrees yesterday with a 30 mph wind. It makes me wonder just how much moisture is being lost to plowing because the soil dries out to depth you plow.
You see a pile of mulch in the foreground. I’ll use that to mulch between the rows of okra and whatever else I plant.
