our garden

As some of you know we have a garden. 

It is beneficial to us because it is (almost) organic, we can walk out to our yard to pick produce.

planting seeds

This year we are planting : onions, Swiss chard, radishes, beets, potatoes, pak choy, garlic, corn, tomatoes,  and sweet peas. We put lots of stuff in to the garden like wood shavings from the chicken coop, compost, ashes, and cow manure.  All these things fertilize the garden. 

Then we tilled the soil to mix the stuff into the soil, to loosen the soil, and to give the plants soft soil to grow in. Some of  the plants have just sprouted. It is fun to have a back yard garden. Bye

  1. Wow it sounds like you have a big garden. How long does it take the potatoes to grow?
