Pioneer Woman

Im so excited for our garden!!!! earlier this week I finished all my starts and purchased all my seeds(why are there so many in one bag? we have so many leftover... for next year or something?!)

Today Phil went to Bark Place and got some loam/compost mix to finish getting our beds ready. I got my carrots, radishes, beets, peas and sugar snap peas in the ground.

I hope to have a garden as bountiful as my parents. This is from a blog I did in Sept after visiting the Fontanosa Farm
Today I talked to my mom on the phone for about an hour just discussing all the stuff I want to process and how to store my food for the winter.
I plan on freezing a ton, canning and drying as much as I can. This is so fun! I'm thankful my family is so into it, I sure didn't appreciate it growing up. Im excited to save money, one can of stewed tomatoes at Safeway is 1.79... hello thats how much one pack of seeds cost!

Im also thankful my husband is so into it. He sorta puts in the majority of the physical labor but I think it will all even out. I'll be maintaining the garden and processing the food and cooking the meals.

Im a beginner, I have a lot of goals, I may not meet them all but its sure fun trying.
