Gardening Plans

We plan to have a huge garden, this summer. It will measure approximately 30' by 50' feet, plus we will plant some veggies all around the property as if they were flowers and let them grow in amongst our flower beds. We will plant some sprawlers, like watermelon and squash, in a lessor-used section of our lawn that gets lots of sunlight. We plan to make some hills from loam and composted manure and set the seeds into them. Then we will let the plants have their run of the place.

Gardening isn't new to us, but gardening to this extent is. We will need to purchase a few things such as:

  • loam
  • composted manure
  • gardening fabric
  • rototiller
  • seeds/seedlings
  • canning jars
  • freezer bags
  • pressure canner
  • freezer

among other things. We are pleased and excited to be making this move. We are consuming far more vegetables than we ever have in our life. To think that we could be eating our own vegetables this summer, fall and winter is exciting. We may have enough that we could sell some in the local Buyer's Club.

The windows are both trimmed out in Amanda's room! They might not be perfect, but certainly good enough for Camp Littlemore. Given the challenge of trimming around both drywall and pine wainscoting on one of the windows, I think we did a fairly decent job.
