I picked around 20lbs of tomatoes at Rancho Pillow today. Sarah will be canning most of them on Wednesday as Dale is at Burning Man. We used minimal fertilizer this year in favor of mixing composted manure with native soil. The corn patch pictured below is just getting ripe. After many years of rototilling this garden, we decided to try digging in a winter fava bean crop instead, and the results have been surprisingly good. I did add a dose of EB stone veggie food under each drip emitter.
