Having the tools and knowledge to grow our food has been something important to us for a very long time. This year we have the opportunity of starting from scratch, planning the largest garden we’ve ever planted, and sharing it all here. Our goal is to produce enough food to preserve for our own family, as well as offer neat varieties to friends and the farmers markets. We are also expanding our herb and natural remedy knowledge so that we can get the absolute most out of our 2021 harvest. We have big plans this year, and so I hope you decide to come grow with us, too!
Come visit my new greenhouse and take a peek into how I organize my seeds. I show you some supplies I’ve been gathering, explain what it means to plant by the signs, and talk a little about our plan for 2021. Come grow with us!
