Sorry, I should have been more clear. I'd like to put in about 1/4 acre mixed veggies each year (with wide spacing between rows) including some small grain patches and a few large sections of field pumpkins and sunflowers.
I'm putting in an acre so that I can quarter it up. 1/4 acre for permanent orchard & blueberries, the remaining 3 quarters will be rotated with annuals, cover crops and small grains. I have a 15' wide permanent lane down the middle so that I can easily use portable fencing to graze or animal till various sections.
I would prefer not to till but I'm not sure how to get a start this year. I could easily mow, green chop and run a pair of feeder pigs on the three unused quarters to prep for two seasons from now but how to get this first quarter started?
Also, just got many hundreds of seeds in today's mail. Can't wait to get started.
