We’re back! We had to skip gardening in 2015 because we had some major weed problems to take care of on our property. But, we have them mostly under control (as well as you can on a farm in the country) and we’re ready to jump back into gardening! The boys and I missed it so much last year.

We’re moving garden locations so we can expand a little and plant more this year. We are also doing a lot of other outdoor projects all over the property so I’ll throw those in here and there as well.

Here is what we have done so far to get the garden beds ready:

Started Seeds of course!




So far we have started all tomatoes, kale, spinach, swiss chard, broccoli, brussels sprouts, lettuce, eggplant and all the herbs.

Tilled up new garden beds and weed clean out (the un-fun part)




We will be putting up the garden fence today  to keep out Rabbit, Deer and our farm dog Josie who thinks new tilled dirt makes the best nap spot.

We also planted 2 new climbing rosebushes that I hope will take off and make our fence line pretty again!


Of course, juice breaks are necessary.


We will also be putting in a Butterfly/Hummingbird Garden in the front flower bed (where our garden was in 2014) and herbs and plants in another bed. I’ll do a post on those as soon as I get them cleaned out and planted.

What are you planting this year?
