garden news


I managed to make a little progress on our garden plans for this year. The root vegetables remaining from last year were pulled, and a large pot of vegetable stock is cooking on the stovetop. Only a few beets remain in the ground. I planted some onions, arugula, lettuce, and herbs. This weekend I hope to get our 4th generation of potatoes in the dirt that our chickens so thoughtfully scratched and fertilized for us (the eggs are just a bonus).

Indoors I started some tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, okra, watermelon, zucchini, basil (I am sure I am leaving something out). I am still quite new to gardening on my own. This whole process is a constant learning experience. Lets hope we at least get some edible bits from the garden this year!

(I didn’t forget about finishing the life in a fixer series. The next part is coming soon…)
