Yes, it’s only January, but we are already working in our garden!

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

This last weekend, I got all of the kiddlings outside (that’s 16 hands to help me plus Larry) And we had to devise a way to gopher proof our garden. Chicken wire it was and we were making out raised beds TALLER. After battling a plethora of black widow spiders, pill bugs and lizards who were trying to hibernate, we as a family cleaned out the greenhouse, and Rowan, Trystan, and a munchkin planted kale and spinach in the the greenhouse while the bigs moved12 railroad ties. Berlyn told me that we were building a fortress and wanted to keep going higher with the wood… 16 shoveled loads of compost and manure later, we have just about got the bed to where we want for the February 2 planting here in northern Arizona.  Welcome to Peas, Radishes and all of my leafy greens!! I can’t wait for REAL PRODUCE again!
