Hello from Indiana and welcome to my farm escapades!
Well, this has been a crazy year! My neighbor and friend decided we wanted to eat better and live more simply. Thus, why not start our own organic food garden and sell the leftovers! My father has 7 acres of dormant farm ground. We are farming three of those acres. The other four we will plant rye or something else that we can bail and sell to grass fed cattle farmers. It is really kicking my butt. I had no idea weeds could get to my head in one month. Last week we finally took the mowers out to chop it down. I bet I am the only gardener that mows between her/his cabbages!! Having 6 kids between us really helps but they don't have the stamina of an adult. We are thinking next year of starting a large greenhouse and growing several kinds of lettuce all year long. People really like the lettuces. well enough for today. Tomorrow we need to weed again and I need to rest, It's only 93 today!!!
come back soon. girlgoneorganic

Hi there ,glad to have you on Garden Stew . We have all kinds of fun here .
Congrats on your new blog girlgoneorganic. I'm sure you will find it a great place to let out all of your weed frustrations. The power of divulging the most annoying details of your garden to the world is therapeutic :D
Hi there GGO it's really lovely to have someone else who believes in being organic. I only have a 1/3 of an acre of garden but it's been completely organic for almost twenty one years now. It still amazes me how Mother Nature finds a natural balance so that we have very little in the way of pest damage. God luck with your veggies!!!
