We have been super busy moving into the new farmhouse… well, maybe not “we.” It’s been more like my DH moving everything by himself little by little. Poor guy! He gets to spend his four weeks of paternity leave moving his little family into our new place.
I have been bonding with our new little girl.. isn’t she a doll?! Nursing is going as perfect as can be and last week at her two week checkup she was in the 85% for height and 88% for weight. Gotta give thanks for a healthy and thriving baby!
As my husband does the big heavy moving I decided to start on our first Fall Garden. Up until now all I’ve ever done is grow in some containers earlier this summer. So, this is my first take on an actual garden where I have a ton of space! This is so exciting for all of us… 2 year old DS included.
We purchased an organic Fall garden kit from Comet Farm just a few miles up from where our place is. The kit came with 32 plants of all kinds of yummies!– Cabbage, broccoli, kale, spinach, calendula, bok choy, etc. We also got seed packets for things like peas, carrots, turnips, swiss chard, etc.
I came home and decided to try my hand at building some garden beds from cedar.
After building two I decided to try some free-standing raised bed rows… a lot easier, less strain on my back and they are free! My favorite part was I was able to mound them up with DD in tow.
I planted 64 white onions (from sets) across two of those beds today… and we’ll see what more I can get done tomorrow.
