Cultivating between beds
Finally got a chance to tidy up field #1 today after kindergarden class. Let's go from the Hokey Pokey to Musical Fields. Field #1 is 30 km. from field #2, and I've recently learned it's in a different hardiness zone as well. The other day I borrowed our freinds kei-tora and brought the kounki 耕運機, roto-tiller, rotivator, whatever it is called over there. Spent 2 hours getting the rows ship-shape. It looks good again but maybe, just maybe, this year will be different. I'll be able to till the rows once a month and it won't all revert to jungle, we'll see.
Was also able to get some new potatoes, pulled up 3 plants, got about a kilo.
