We are getting very excited over here as we have two more days and the raised garden bed project begins. If you are just tuning in and haven’t heard we have been growing the seedlings for our organic garden. We started the seedlings indoors for the last month, they then went outdoors to aclimate for one week and then will be meeting their new raised garden beds we will be building. If you have thought about a garden and having table fresh fruits and veggies at your disposal all year then you may want to consider a raised garden bed. We will have fresh red and green lettuces, spinach, kale, herbs, tomatoes, yellow and green squash, spaghetti squash, green beans, 5 colors of bell peppers purple, green, yellow, orange and red, carrots, beets, broccoli, asparagus, onions, garlic, cantaloupe, strawberries, and more.
We will be updating you on the growth and the steps on the project letting you know any challenges we ran into as well as short cuts to a smooth project.
We have calculated the savings on producing your own food and you will be amazed at how much you can save. Not only do you save fuel, packaging, advertising costs and more, but you also have much more nutritious fresh foods to your table intact with more nutrients then store bought that sits around and drives all over town as it transports itself to the store. Save the fuel to and from the store and make feeding your family much more convenient. It is a much closer distance to pick your food from your backyard then it is to pay the high premiums and travel out to go get it. Children love to get involved with picking the garden delights for dinner and you can educate them on their food source while doing it.
