    Awesome video. I'm planning on kinda doing the same type of thing, but with a rotating garden. I would like your thoughts on it if you have time… I have a good bit of land, most of it I let a guy grow hay on. So my plan is to have a rotating compost garden. Where I have 3 or 4 sectioned off connected areas with each about the size of your garden (imagine a rectangle cut off into 3 or 4 areas by fencing) Each section will be big enough for my garden for that year… the other 2 or 3 areas will be where I add shredded leaves, shredded paper, etc… and I will have worm towers throughout all sections for my veggie compost. So in year one, I'll plant in section one, while building soil in the other sections with compost and worm castings, then the next year plant in the next section, and so on and so on. The idea being that I'll build the soil over the years to have a better garden each year. I do know I'll have weeds with this method though… so trying to think of the best method to prevent from having a bunch… Since I have hay, was thinking about laying down a good layer of that in the fall on the section I plan to use as my garden during the next year. I also work at a big box store, so I can get bails of cardboard for free, you could too if you wanted. We have to pay about 20 bucks to have them taken away.. so most places would gladly place a bail on your truck or trailer for ya. However, there may be some cardboard in there not suitable for gardening ( lots of ink or wax) that you'd need to shift out and it's crushed, not flattened. So, it wouldn't be near as easy to lay down, but you would get all you need in one trip.

    Anyway, thanks for any recommendations.

    i found in virginia it best to plant onions in the fall . I have planted as late as early November. Make sure they have plenty of horse or chicken manure.Around May pull back the mulch so it exposes the top of the white bulb if you dont do this it will keep as a spring onion. My dad exposes it down to the root. That how it make onions.
