Last week we discussed planting seed directly into the ground. While this works for some plants, for most it's better if the seed is first planted in seedling trays or containers.
Now that you are done with preparing your beds and ready to plant, you have to decide how you want to go about planting your seeds.
Fertile, good-quality sheep are key to better production, healthy lambs and high-quality meat. Since one ram mates with up to 40 ewes in a season, and its genetics make up half of the lamb flock, a good ram is very important. Buy the best ram you can afford, from a reputable breeder that you trust.
Preparing a vegetable plot can be hard work, but it's rewarding when you harvest your first crop.
Chicken manure can add many nutrients to your soil, and works better than most other manures.

If you remove virus-infected plants and insects at the start of the season, you can start off with a clean slate.
Damaging cold snaps are inevitable, but damage can be reduced with some understanding and preparation.
