Here is the process we did to double dig our garden bed.
|Here is the first row dug of our garden bed. Notice the cover crop. Allow 2-4 weeks for your cover crop to breakdown before planting.|
|Here is the first row of soil from the garden bed.|
|I amended this bed with sulphur and gypsum to bring down the pH and some Rabbit manure for fertilizer|
|This is the second row that has been forked and amended, ready for row three to be turned on top.|
|Here is the whole bed turned.|
|We added a fence around the bed to keep the wee ones from unripe picking sprees and trampling rampages.|
Double digging is especially important where you are planting root crops to aerate the soil so the root veggies don't have a hard time going straight down into the soil. We planted one row of beets, three of orange carrots, three of scarlet carrots, and three of Harris Model parsnips.
