See the remarkable video that was filmed just before the weather turned colder. We now have the beds laid (see picture below) so that we can get on the ground in this spring.
It's hard to get the tractors with their equipment into the fields in the wet spring weather. The plastic laid in the fall season with a cover crop in between keeps us from compacting the soil and also keeps the area for planting dryer. If we need a bit more moisture there are drip irrigation lines underneath.
