Although the blog has been quiet, the homestead has been anything but! It’s been a crazy, busy Spring (our busiest season) and we are super excited to share with everyone what we have been up too.
There has been an addition added to the garden that will allow us to expand our short growing season….we’ve added a GREENHOUSE! I’m sure you can all sense my excitement and enthusiasm.
Jeremiah has been hard at work designing and building our 16′ X 7′ greenhouse and with this new addition comes extra growing room, more crop growing opportunities and longer growing seasons. Hallelujah!
We’ve taken tons of photos during the project and are delighted with the end result. Check out all our updated photos below.
Because of the addition of our greenhouse, this years garden has already outgrown us and we are overwhelmed with copious amounts of fresh veggies on the daily.
Canning season is upon us…let the fun begin. Canning recipes coming soon. In the meantime, check out the progress pics from the garden:
Stage 1: Seedlings, layout and garden bed prep
Stage 2: Transplantation
Stage 3: Growth
Stage 4: Harvest, the best part!
Stage 5: Recipes and Preservation
Gardening isn’t for everybody, it’s a lot of work but the rewards are refreshing!
