It has been a non-stop day of writing and it is now 5:18 in the early evening and I don’t want to post to my blog! So here I am because I wouldn’t be able to relax knowing that I had taken a shortcut and skipped this blog.
What to write about? My brain is fried after too many SEO articles today, so coming up with a creative subject is not going to happen. Why don’t I tell you about our garden?
We harvested everything from our first garden, and it was a bountiful year. The only thing that didn’t grow the way we had envisioned was the corn, and that is always iffy in western Washington, so we didn’t feel bad about it at all. You can see pictures of the garden right after we planted last April.
Now that the harvest is over, it’s time to plan for next year. We have already built two more raised beds, and the lumber is ready for the other three we are building. We are almost done building the lettuce table, a wonderful idea I picked up on HubPages.
We have drawn up our planting scheme, so we are all ready to go when the spring gets here. We will basically be doubling our growing area next year, so we are pretty excited about the prospects.
Oh, I almost forgot, we are adding chickens next spring. We have to built a chicken coop (there is no way I’m buying one for $400) and that will take a few days, but it will be pretty cool to have four or five chickens giving us eggs daily.
So that’s it from our little urban farm. Living Simple baby! Lovin’ every minute of it!
