On the advice from BC Hall of Fame, and record holder Scott Carley (Spambie) I mowed down the cover crop to a manageable level to make the rototilling easier and more efficient. We have spread “some amendments” as per the soil test results and recommendations from other grower mentors on this site. The soil is in amazing condition and requires only a bit of tweaking to get the numbers in order and where we’d like to see them. 0-0-50, Kmag, Calpril, magnesium, boron, bat guano, kelp meal, alfalfa meal and multi purpose micronutrients have been meticulously weighed, measured out and spread over the freshly cut cover crop and everything will get tilled by “Rototiller Rob” this coming Monday.

After that, heat mats will be installed, hoop houses built and heaters installed this year for the chilly overnight lows that we still get till it’s June.

Seed selection has been narrowed down, seed starting mix and lights are ready to go. That’s enough work for today, I golf 18 holes this afternoon to relax after a few hours playing on our land.
