My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

Well as you can see it has been a long time since I've posted. Mom fell and hit her head shortly after my last post and the summer was one long nightmare, 9 weeks between two hospitals and a nursing home. And I had to move in with her. Physically she's doing ok except for her arthritis. But she's forgetful and needs help.

So, I spent the summer putting up new pens and moving birds into her big tin barn, originally built to house their motor home.

Even as big as the barn is tho I still have fewer pens than I did at my house, so  lot of birds had to go.  But less space just means culling harder and more meat in the freezer.

I am trying to hang onto some of my breeding projects if I can. It just means hatching fewer chicks at a time and spreading things out more.

Mom has a lot of space that I am slowly trying to rejuvenate and get ready for planting. Mostly flowers and herbs in the front yard. I seem to be missing the pictures I took of the front yard.

We do have a great view from up here on the hill of a mountain called Sleeping Beauty.
