Victory Garden =)
Every year I do a hodge-podge veggie garden. Basically it's a big mess of whatever decides to grow from seeds that I throw out there, and whatever has decided to volunteer from the compost. Sam and I were talking this weekend. It seems the fruit in the stores goes bad so quickly. The strawberries and grapes we buy have mold within a few days. Boo. We are going to do some extra planning for next year. We are looking at different fruit trees, berry bushes, and other varieties of plants to see what may suit our tastes, environment and space.
Plus, I am going to do some indoor gardening again this winter. We are going to research and see about building a greenhouse or other structure for winter months too. I think that our back yard will eventually be a mini-farm. =) Popping out my "Square Foot Gardening Book" and "Victory Garden" books too. Though old, these books have great guidelines for large output in small spaces. Yeah, just another project to add to the lists, lol.
