It’s just been one of those years, we got the garden in late and it’s been slow to get going. Now we’re happy to say that things are really starting to grow well and produce so it may end up being a good gardening season after all.
It was a beautiful, spring-like day so what better way to spend the day than out in the garden. We’re working to convert the garden over to no till. First we plan to add a nice thick layer of mulch over the entire garden then put the chickens in there to help work the mulch and break it down.
This year we’ve been having good luck growing some vegetables that we’ve normally had trouble growing in the past. The first one is broccoli…
I have to laugh because in past years our broccoli never looked that good, in fact it didn’t really resemble anything like this at all. When Brooke saw that, she said, “Wow, I can’t believe that came from the garden. It looks like what you’d find in the store. It’s awesome!”
