Here are some pics of my no-till garden from September. It is in it's third year now and was cover cropped for 1.5 years before we used it for growing veggies. We tried polycultures last year with great success and I will be expanding on that this year. Growing in Polycultures sure makes the garden feel/look more natural. I plan to add more useful flowers to the mix this year.

We start all our seeds in soil blocks but we have had mixed results. I like the system but there are still some variables that need to get worked out. It's all an experiment. Any feedback would be great.
