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.

New Pullet Eggs and Meat Chicks

I know I haven't been around much lately. Loosing my brother and his son just 3 weeks apart really took the wind out of my sails. But I have been working the garden and have a lot of things to be grateful for. The new pullets are laying. 

I'm really pleased with the color of the brown layers and olive eggers this year. 

The farmers market in Globe is finished and now we are in Superior 9-12 every Saturday morning. 

2 does came to visit one day. I'm glad they didn't get into the gardens. 

The kittens are getting big.  

And so are the chicks. 

The meaties were getting big so we processed them on Monday. These guys don't look that big but the biggest ones dressed out over 4 pounds without feet, necks or giblets!  There were 21 of them, nearly 80 pounds of meat. Wowza. We had to cut them up to get them all in the freezer.   Next up soup stock from the carcasses. Lots of work but certainly worth it to know where your food comes from.
