About this Garden Plan

My organic garden plans include companion planting practices. I've purchased most of my seeds from High Mowing, Peaceful Valley, Botanical Interests and Sand Hill Preservation. Some are saved from previous years. I plan to save more this year. Our soil is listed as heavy/clay soil, however the raised beds were created in the "lasagna" style and improved with homemade compost and plenty of horse manure, provided by Brego, Strider and Cody.
