Big Garden Prep!

We are planning our biggest garden yet this year!  We are taking the two large grain plots and preparing them for ALL vegetables!  This is an important part of crop rotation.  I have already planted grasses here twice, first corn and then wheat/barley.  Now the land must have somthing else planted on it for a season or it won't be healthy in the long run.  We will be planting a few new crops this year, turnips, different varieties of potato, shell beans and sweet corn along with the traditional crops of lettuce, tomato squash etc.  The chickens are still in this area at the moment.  Their coop is inside the deer fence.  As we weed and dig the soil they come along afterward and show great interest in the holes we leave behind!  They're looking for bugs and anything else of interest.  As I get closer to planting I will have to move the chickens and their coop out of this area because they will eat every plant in sight if they're allowed!
