This is what we grow

For our trial run at our new garden up by the silo, with no electricity and no water near by, I think we did pretty a-ok. We learned that you definitely need to remove the weeds when you till it up the first time. We also learned that weeds take nutrients from the soil that the the vegetable plants could use. Finally we learned that pepper plants can be very prolific. This is the last round of weekend harvesting. More butternut squash coming up though!

Later this fall we’re going to cover the current garden site with cardboard and put our barn waste on top of it all winter. Next year we hope to have bigger badder veggies! Can you say road side stand! Nick sure can since that may be his job!
