Making the Grade.

Since starting on our egg selling venture I have been asked multiple times about what goes into going legit, and what the requirements for grading eggs are. The reason we grade eggs is to assure a standard of quality, size, and freshness in an egg. This determines how we label them and to whom we are allowed to sell.

Raised Beds vs. Rows

There are many types of vegetable gardens out there from the traditional rows – one plant wide row with walkways in between – to raised beds (and wide beds) or more natural, loose organic gardens. I try to stay away from rows because they are much less space efficient than the other two  types. With rows you end up devoting a lot more land to walkways, which isn’t a good use of space if you’re trying to maximize your harvest. They do make harvesting easier and are better suited for using equipment which is why some people still use them.
