We are starting our second garden. Last year we had the modest goal of growing a salad. We failed. That is not true, we grew tomatoes and cucumbers until we grew weary and could eat them no more. We let many go to waste before we thought “Pickle dummy, pickles.”
We are new to all this stuff. Sometimes we miss the obvious.
We do, however, learn so this year we planted tons of things that can be canned, dried, and frozen, so we can eat what we have grown throughout the year. That is the plan.
We have high hopes for this plan.
If we fail, there is the farmers market and Chef Boyardee. Ha!
A safety net is nice. We might be working towards something like self sustenace but we aren’t really that close. This garden is a step in removing a piece of our ignorance. Can we grow more and can more this year than last? Will we like kohlrabi? I think that we can and that will. We’ll keep you posted.
Are you growing anything this year?
