Gardening

2013Garden

I love my garden.  It’s my summer sanctuary.  I grew up learning to garden.  We had a HUGE garden and orchard and we put up a lot of our own food.  Now that I have my own household and family to feed, I really enjoy being able to grown and harvest my own food.

For the last 5 years, I’ve been designing and building my garden as well as perfecting my soil and growing techniques.  I have a 30’x40′ plot enclosed by a 4′ fence (to keep out the MULTIPLE critters who visit my back yard).  I’ve designed raised beds and utilize a lasagna gardening technique to fill the beds with organic compost.  It results in higher yields using less space and is entirely ORGANIC!

Besides the yield and inner peace I get from my garden, my biggest enjoyment is involving my kids in gardening… just like how I grew up.
