Why I stopped homesteading.  

Just kidding I didn’t stop but I did take a break.

A few pumpkins … I didn’t not plant them.   I have 2 plants and 3 pumpkins that randomly showed up.    I would suspect they are left over from last fall.    I will be saving seeds from them as they obviously do well in my soil.

A free goat

Won’t Jackson be surprised when he gets home and there’s a goat.  I’ve had a couple before but never had much luck as they escape.  This guy was free so I won’t have anything invested if he leaves.  We have named him George.   He does wonder but cones back when you call his name.  

Update

Mud.  I have mud and most of my plants have rotted.  I did get married which was awesome.

Im a fungi.

It has been surprisingly wet this spring.  These have popped up in-between my beds.  I’m a fungi … haha to funny.  All joking aside I would love to learn more about mushrooms and fungus.  Some of it taste awesome im sure but on the other hand the not tasty stuff will kill me so either way I am a little scared to even try it.

A small update.

Life has been very busy.  With the wedding coming up in a few weeks and trying to get everything ready for the ground I’ve been busy.  I actually harvested some kale tonight.  For whatever reason the beds are overly weedy this year.  I bet I’ve pulled 3 wheel barrows worth of weeds from the 3 main beds.  I am getting very excited about the lettuce.  I’ve got a couple kinds and yum yum it will be tasty.

Garden Extension

I love raised beds and I am pretty sure I may never garden in the ground again.  I like the neatness of the whole thing.  I also think weeding is so much better.  I did a lot of research and started small.  Bit by bit I try to add a little every year.  This year I am adding a 10′ by 30′ section.  It will be enough for 3 more beds and a center bed.  Hard to describe but you will see what I am talking about when its done.
