You will find me in my garden

The gardens are planted and seeds are starting to sprout. I just finished putting down the straw and it’s everywhere!  But, if it does its job of keeping down the weeds and holding in moisture – so be it.

I have been reading a book called Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess. It has inspired many weekend projects for Jerad and I. Great book – especially for those of us needing some of the basics.

We have two (and a half) garden areas – getting ready to expand one for more space. Every year we press our luck with the frost. With a short growing season we do what we can April/May but keep the plastic sheets close. I think – I hope – we are past the last frost. So far, everything made it.
