Kicking off my home vegetable garden for 2017 – this year with a new twist! While I’m a big advocate of no-till and cover crops for my farm acres this will be my first attempt at growing my vegetable garden without tillage. The method I’ve chosen to use is my own version of the sheet-mulch technique. I honestly have no idea how this is going to turn out, but I think it will work. If it doesn’t I reckon I’ll be on a diet this coming winter……….. (not that it would hurt me to lose a pound or two).

    Looks good Greg. I've found that mulching the space in between the beds really helps keep the moisture in the soil. We get used horse stall bedding and spread it about 4 inches thick. Mulch and drip irrigation increased yield two fold and brought water consumption to almost none. Chickens run on the garden during the winter and break down the bedding and add nitrogen. We still till the ground, but I've been pushing to go no till over the years.

    Are you planning to leave the rye in the rows? That would help act as a cover at least
