Leets Garden

So we finally did it and planted a garden!

I haven’t taken any pictures up till now because I’ve been busy.

So far all we’ve eaten are some herbs and lettuce. I can’t wait for more veggie to come in. We have two raised beds with cabbage, collards, tomatoes, lettuce, about 3 kinds of peppers, cucumbers, 2 kinds of summer squash, strawberries, and onions.

Along with an herb garden with basil, thyme, mint, cilantro, and more onions.

You can’t tell from these pictures but the leaves on the squash are huge!

Everything is thriving right now and there has been enough rain that most of the watering has been done naturally or from collected rain water.

I have been hesitant to plant anything more because I usually kill everything I try to grow, but with the success thus far I foresee adding another box next year. This is living the homesteading dream! Now to just learn canning…
