Planting for the Future

Sunday, February 18, 2018

Yesterday, BF and I visited a locally owned greenhouse/garden store. We did not buy a greenhouse, but we talked with the owner and got some good education about the local weather, greenhouses and gardening. We ended up buying starts for 3 of my favorite veggies - broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel sprouts. We also got seeds for 2 kinds of radishes and spinach! We should have produce in a couple of months. I want to get asparagus started. I understand that takes about 4 years to get a solid crop going.

We want to have a greenhouse, hydroponic setup and raised beds. It will take time and money, but the goal is to eat from our land and, perhaps, sell some and donate more.

    Best of luck on your gardening! We talked about putting in raised beds last summer, but we didn’t get it done. I’ve managed a tomato plant or two in containers, but haven’t ventured past that.

    That would be amazing to have a greenhouse. I hope it all works out for you.

    Wow! That will be so awesome you can grow your own favorite veggies! Nothing beats fresh out of the garden! Asparagus is tricky and challenging to grow, hope it works for you!
