Whether it be freshly prepared meals all through the Spring, Summer and Fall – or using our canned and frozen produce the year around – what grows in our garden provides the majority of food for our family. With that said, creating our plan now is a big key to attaining our food goals once the growing season arrives. At the beginning of each  year – we take time to plot out what varieties to grow, how many to plant of each – and where to put them in our raised row beds. As for guidance, when it comes to what we plant, we always follow what we call the Golden Rule of Garden Planning : Grow What You And Your Family Like To Eat!  The 2016 Plan… As you can see from the 2016 plan – this year’s garden is once again chock-full of heirloom varieties of tomatoes and peppers.

So we thought for today’s Sunday Farm Update – we would take a little time to go over the results and share some of the winners – and losers of the 2015 garden experiments. We have a lot of fun trying out new things each year in the garden, and just like in life – some work out perfectly – while others you simply chalk up to a lesson well-learned!  But as the old saying goes, when you stop trying – you stop learning – and where is the fun in that?! So with that said – here is a look at our 2015 experiments: What Worked: The Potato Crates After successfully experimenting last year with growing some of our potato crop in home-made wooden crates – we went “all-in” this year, planting our entire crop with the crate method. We planted them in a loose mixture of straw, compost and dirt – filling up the crate […]
