Organic Gardening

Well, it’s been a while….what a crazy busy summer it’s been!

 

I have a new organic garden and because of the delicious foods that we have grown this summer, I’ve decided to share my farm space with people that would enjoy gardening or perhaps don’t have the space to garden. A friend of mine told me that she loves to garden but the soil at her house isn’t rich enough and she doesn’t want to spend the time and effort to enrich it, so she has become my very first customer!

 

So, it will look like this……

 

A garden plot 20’ x 30’ fenced, it has to be fenced or the deer will eat everything. Over the almost 30 years of being on this farm, I have learned that the deer don’t recognize a garden as human space, the deer have the nerve to think you planted those pumpkins just for them!

 

I will provide two rain barrels to make compost tea or just catch rain water.

 

I will have available for purchase top soil, compost soil, and straw.

 

Fall is the perfect time to prepare your garden for spring planting or, if ambitious, fall planting (garlic) for next year’s harvest.

 

I would invite other farm bloggers to encourage neighbours to come out and plant their own gardens. There is something very satisfying about growing your own food and having it come out of the garden and to your plate within minutes.
