Cape Ann Crops

Rock pile from digging lettuce bed

We just dug a new 3'x 8' lettuce bed, tilled in some compost and extra topsoil and surrounded it with landscape timbers. This being New England we harvested a good crop of rocks - only one monster. Let's see - 3 x 8 at 1 foot deep is 24 cubic feet and we got about 4 cubic feet of rocks. I'm, sure new ones will grow in the few years.
