So, we have become farmers. We were already gardening our 1/3 acre back yard and had extended the garden this year but we have recently leased a 4.1 acre parcel of land. The land is mostly covered with multiflora brambles but there were some bare spots
and a small stream on the back end of the property.
We tilled about 2,500 square feet of the property so far
and will start growing vegetables on that. After we’ve planted this area, we’ll start clearing some more of the land.
Tomorrow, we’ll put up the deer fencing and start planting on the new property but today was a relaxed evening. I transplanted some plants that were outgrowing the seed starters and started some new seeds while the menfolk mowed the lawn.
