So since we have all been at home for the most part, we decided we would start an actual garden, in addition to the greenhouse. This garden will serve two purposes: first, it will help to feed the animals, and second it help to feed us.
While I know that right now it doesn’t look like much (Hubby just finished planting it when this was taken), in a few short weeks, hopefully it will start to look like we know what we are doing. Hubby tilled the ground and then leveled it. Then using the tractor/mower he plowed the rows. Today he actually got to plant it and water it. So hopefully in a few weeks we will be able to see some growth.
It’s a pretty good plot of the yard that gets full sun. I can’t remember what all was planted there but there is some ground cover and some climbing plants that will need something to climb on. I know that some sunflowers went in it. Buckwheat and flax seed too. So here’s to a good growing season this year.
This plus what we have in the greenhouse, I shouldn’t have to buy veggies at all this year. I hope anyways. Did you start a garden this year? I would love to hear what you are planting or what you would like to plant if your growing season hasn’t started yet.
Have a great day!
