Braving the cold and watching the approaching Nor'Easter, we found what appears to be a perfect tomato at Market Basket, New England grown, labeled "Backyard Farms". Looking that up, we found a 42-acre hydroponic greenhouse in Maine. This is how you feed locavores in the Northeast winters.
The last two beds to be "double-dug". After this morning, all of the main garden beds have been loosened and cleared of big rocks to a depth of about 18".
We spread half-made compost and bamboo trimmings 12" deep, which will decay and add to the organic content of the soil.
Yeah,it was work.
