Mark and Bruce double-dug a 12 inch-wide strip 20-ft long along the northern side of Bed B1. The soil was a little dry and extremely compacted. Loosened soil depth was about 8 to 10 inches. 1/2 cf of Home Depot Steer manure compost blend was added and mixed into the freshly double dug row and an additional 1 cf of the same compost will be added to the top layer of soil in the 1 ft wide strip. A remaining flat of 16 Sugar Snap and 5 - Mr. Big peas were planted in two rows alternating on 4-inch centers. Another flat of 48 pea seedlings will be transplanted Friday , 11/12/10. Note: need to add compost first! Also sprayed Safer soap on bed A2 (coles, which have cabbage aphid).
