We have a veggie garden, that is 40 meters long and 15 meters wide field. 19 rows in total. Don’t know if the word “row” is the right one, but check the picture below. If there is another word how to call this – let me now in the comments below!
Why in rows!?
Simply Latvians don’t know another way to grow things! At least not in my family, nor Janis. We don’t do raised beds or pots. If someone grows potatoes in pots – we smile, cause Latvians have enough land to grow, even in cities – there is an option to rent a plot!
Since we bought an old house with a huge plot – more than 7ha (more than 17 acres), and previous owner cultivated such a big piece of land for potatoes and carrots, we decided to stick with the same size, but be clever and grow almost every veggie we can grow in our climate.
Will skip all the sowing and planting I did starting late February, and get to the gardening. We have clay soil so there will be a lot to do to improve it, and maybe we will end up having raised beds :).
But for this year we have rows and yesterday we hoed two – onions! Now they are starting to show their greens. Nelle loved doing it and we used super old hoes we found in the old house!
Both were happy to see onions free from weeds 🙂
Actually there are a lot to share, don’t know where to start.
