Here we go. Another year another attempt at a vegetable garden. Last year I didn't even bother. I was a weee bit pregnant and weeding would have been the death of me. The year before I did not plant anything deep enough and half of my seeds died. And the first year? oh the first year....How those weeds taunted me.
This year I am determined to stay on top of things. I've planted my seeds and they are now in my sunporch. Adam and I have what...6-8 weeks now to prepare the garden for sowing?? I'll admit that I have only a tiny idea as to what I'm doing and I'm not enjoying this steep learning curve.
I want to be THAT farmhouse. The one with the giant garden. The one with all the necessary vegetables. I want to be THAT family that eats only what they grow. That grows enough of their own food to store and eat over the winter months. Oh how I WANT to be HER.
Who knows, maybe someday I will. For this year I'll be satisfied if my seeds grow. I phoned the local paper and asked them to do an article on me for Garden Sharing. The editor said it was a great idea but I'm still waiting for the phone call. I want sooo badly for someone with loads of time and knowledge to come out here and use my land. I would benefit from their knowledge and get a portion of the product as payment for use of land.
Sounds great to me, but perhaps God needs me to figure it out on my own. Perhaps I have an inner gardener waiting to emerge. Let's hope because if the weeds take over like they have in years past I think I'll move to the city next year so I no longer feel so inadequate.
.....Here we Go!!
