Ploughing the market garden

As previously reported on this blog, we have this winter split the market garden into two by planting three lines of willow windbreak down the middle of it. The further half will be worked as much as possible by tractor, starting last week when the ground drained just enough for us to be able to plough it, one acre taking about three hours on Friday then Saturday afternoons.
The market garden before ploughing - the first time it has been ploughed for several years.

Getting started.

Three hours later - ready for rolling and rotovating into strips.

Three lines of overwintering onions undisturbed along the southern edge.
