    I think its great you are going no till. Dont get disappointed if its not as easy as they all make it out to be…..but its totally worth it. We are on our third year. Ill offer a couple tips if you are interested. First you want good boarders to keep the grass out. Bermuda grass will spread right over the top of the chips and take root. Its nasty stuff.
    Second pile all the manure and unfinished compost you can get on top of the wood chips now. It will help speed decomposition of the wood chips. Used coffee grounds are really good for this too and you can get large quantities for free from coffee shops.
    Lastly, seed sprouting in a wood chip garden is tough. The mulch insulates the soil and takes longer for it to warm in spring. You may notice slower germination if you sow direct. And dont forget to fertilize throughout the year! I use aged rabbit manure tea.

    That's fantastic! I think that's definitely the way to go. One thing to be aware of though, is that wood chips can bind some of the nutrients in them. It will slowly release it over time, but it's something you'll want to plan for.
    Congratulations on the trip!👍🙏
