The garden in the back: we tilled, added peat moss, dug new raised beds, and placed straw down in the rows. The onions sprouted up from last year – they never got big enough to harvest, and I didn’t want to just till them under this year.

The “back” part of the garden (behind the onions, in this photo) is mostly clay and really heavy. The plan is to plant a cover crop and legume (fenugreek) there this year to prevent it from turning to weeds and for green manure for next year.
