Section 3 Garden Pictures

When we were ready to double the size of our garden again, we were going to be adding almost 1,500 additional square feet. This time, we used 100% double grind mulch. Because the mulch needed time to decompose and break down into soil, we had to let it sit fallow for a year. However, after that year, the garden was ready to be put into full production. It has not disappointed! This has been our most cost effective approach. We’ve been very pleased with the results and have no plans to expand again. This garden is just under a 1/10th of an acre and we’ve been averaging more than 3,000 pounds of produce a year from it. 

Check out our post on how we constructed this section of our garden if you are interested in using this method for yourself.
