Before selling our house and moving so Mike can fulfill his dream of becoming a farming CPA,
we’ve decided to try our luck in the backyard first with a small organic garden.
First Mike, with the help of Grandpa Duane, built a 4 ft X 8ft raised bed garden.
Next we started sprouting seeds! I think we started sprouting a bit early because the majority of them petered out before we were ready to plant.
We ended up buying seedlings from a really neat place called Lilly of the Valley.
Mike even built us a makeshift compost bin out of old wooden pallets!
I’m sure our neighbors think we’re crazy at this point, but I’m hoping to win them over with a few baskets of our summer harvest. 🙂
If all goes well…and we don’t kill everything….our harvest will include green and red peppers, broccoli, red lettuce, spinach, green beans,
Roma and cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, basil and jalapenos.
If you have any garden advice or pesticide free pest control tips PLEASE post them.
We are all ears!
