Main garden is about 25 feet by 36 feetor a bit larger. I grow many vegetable which are pressure canned for off season use. I have a new way of keeping the soil energized. It is experimental at this stage.
There are several trees that produce many leaves. This year the leaves were reduced by a vacuum blower that reduced the voluum by about half. I rototill the garden after removing all weeds and spread the reduced leaves on top of the soil about three inches thick. This will be rototilled in the spring prior to planting. The leaves will be reduced and mostly consumed adding fertilizr to the garden. Basically natural fertilizer.
