Area to grow things

 

We live on a 20 acre farmstead that gives us over 13 acre we can plant for various projects.  This includes a pond that collects tile drainage water we can use to irrigate the different projects.

Plastic mulch layer

 

For many of the plants we transplant, we plant them into plastic mulch.  This plastic mulch reduces weeding and watering needs.  To get water under the mulch, we use plastic drip tape.

Tractor and tillage equipment

 

This tractor is an 80 hourse power tractor.  Amoung other things, it runs a 6 foot wide rototiller.  This type of equipment makes it easy to prepare the long rows for planting.
