Vegetable Garden
In episode 16 of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show, Pa Mac demonstrates the basic ins and outs of growing a vegetable garden, including laying off rows, planting, and cultivating the garden plot using all types of methods: Human power, draft animals, tractors, and tillers. Learn a little about soil fertility and soil improvement using homemade fertilizers, dealing with threats to your garden plants (ever try to keep deer or crows out of your garden?), as well as three basic purposes of an organic vegetable garden for the small farm or homestead.

Be sure and subscribe to the Farm Hand’s Companion channel to keep up with the progress as Pa Mac takes an undeveloped piece of property and turns it into a small subsistence farm. Watch for new episodes as often as Pa Mac can crank ’em out and still run a small farm. (As long as he’s alive and kicking, he’s most assuredly farming and filming!)
