  1. Chris,

    This was a particularly good farm letter with a particularly valuable and widely applicable lesson in your final sentence. A treat to read on my evening commute. Please say hi to Jenny for me. We’re thinking a lot about you both up here in Chicago.

  2. I always love reading your newsletter and seeing what you are doing there at the farm. Do not beat yourself up too much when considering what to do about plastic sheeting and all the stuff/implements you need to make it a bit easier on everyone. Consider this—factor in a little child who will take up even more of your time and in a good way( most of the time). I say go for a bit of ease in your life. It will be worth it in the end. Much love to you both.

  3. Earthtools has a plastic-mulch-layer attachment that is built for my BCS. It also sells a attachment that allows it to be converted over to a 4 wheel tractor.

    Here’s the link https://earthtoolsbcs.com/implements-soilworking/plastic-mulch-layer/

    Total cost is around 940 dollars.

    Hope all is well-
