STIRRUP HOEING CORN ON WOOD PRAIRIE FAMILY FARM IN MAINE. Here, Caleb's sister Amy (left) and Megan clean up the remaining few visible weeds left after running through this field of Organic Dorinny Seed Corn with a tractor outfitted with potato hoes. https://www.woodprairie.com/…/sweet-corn-seed-organic-dori…/
Immediately after this hand work, we companion-sowed this corn field to Organic Winter Rye to protect the soil and suppress weeds. This year the Rye will form a dense short mat. Next Summer the Winter Rye will be harvested as a grain crop.
Organic Certified Seed Potatoes (https://www.woodprairie.com/…/certified-organic-maine-cert…/) were grown in this field last year in our 4-year rotation . Immediately after last Fall's harvest potato, fields were planted to Winter Rye. That crop of Winter Rye is drying down and will soon be harvested. Caleb, Megan & Jim
