Garden Beds or Rows?
Jeff Poppen gives us an overview of the operations of Long Hungry Creek biodynamic farm. He discusses the reasons why he plants some crops in rows, while others he grows in beds.
Jeff says his parents loved growing plants on their Illinois farm, and he credits them for his passion for growing. He’s made his living growing the best organic vegetables he can. Jeff acknowledges he has learned through experience over four decades. He is also an avid student of old-time farming methods, the way folks grew stuff before all of the chemicals in farming. He is compelled to try and shorten the learning curve for other gardeners. Jeff adds, “My wish is that my love for growing organically inspires others.”
