FURTHER PROOF OF CONCEPT

screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-9-00-47-am

Red winter wheat garden, grown in composted soil under some leftover Agribon floating row cover, no watering. Grew in very thick and strong, photo doesn’t quite do it justice. The cover kept birds from eating the wheat seed, mice and rabbits from eating the growing stalks, protected the plants and soil from high winds, and kept the soil moist. Perfect for desert farming, just like Roger Smith said. This Sunday, Roger will be leading a workshop for Coyote Valley Stewards at his home on running a kitchen garden in the desert. If you’re interested in attending, let Jay know.
