Back to the Gardens

Category: Just stuff | Posted: Thu Feb 11, 2010 3:03 pm

Now that we've gotten through the trauma of the new puppies and I am finally on the upswing some of this horrid bronchial pneumonia I've had, I can return to thoughts of spring and my gardens. My hubby and I have been seriously considering a greenhouse. We can't afford a pretty fancy one like we would like, but it would sure benefit us and some of those around us who can't grow gardens to help supply a need. So we need to get creative.

We live in an area where the economy is terribly bad and so many people are out of work. Last year after I canned, I was able to provide a couple of families with some veggies to get them through the winter. As we watched how that happened and we ourselves were blessed by being able to do this, we are now looking to do more.

So, does anyone have ideas or suggestions that we could look into. We are scanning all websites and catalogs that we can trying to get ideas. We have an area on the side of the mountain that could easily handle a 16' x 50' greenhouse. Although a small part of that will be sectioned off for chickens. Now that is something new I am going to try this year. We'll talk about that later. I have discovered there is nothing like fresh eggs. Good for us and good for the dogs.

Bring on the ideas and suggestions PLEASE!

Oh yeah, we are starting to investigate root cellaring too. Found a fantastic book I just started reading. So far it's been very informative.
We shall see.

Thank you. I will. I am finding many excellent ideas and tips as I am finally having some time to do some serious reading in the forums. This is great. Beats spending a fortune on books, uh huh!

There are some really knowledgeable folks on this forum. And maybe if you post your questions as forum posts too, you'll get some discussion going that would be helpful. Love your blogs too.

I can see the knowledge and wisdom from the folks here and I intend to harvest it. (pun intended) I will take full advantage of posting questions on the forum. In a few days I am going to start with questions on growing cranberries. Need to get all my notes together first.
