So I'm totally new to this forum and semi-new to gardening. I've gathered a few families together to undertake creating a decent sized garden plot. Probably about 60ft by 100ft.
I've done some small time backyard gardening with a fair bit of success, but never anything of this scale or magnitude. I was hoping to find somewhere an easy 1, 2, 3, etc step guide to starting and effectively farming a small piece of land like this, but I've been coming up empty handed (if anyone has a basic guide it would be appreciated).
In addition to some basic steps, part of my issue lies in the slope- parts are at a 1% to 5% at the top of the lot.
Do I simply work to level this off? Create terraces (sounds like a lot of work and $), deal with the slope and erosion issues by simply planting accordingly.
We've got water to the land, the rocks have been cleared, getting ready to till, create rows, etc. Hoping to have seeds planted within 6 weeks (am I dreaming or is it doable).
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
