I have been vacant for the past few days and the reason for that is that I have been planting my very own victory garden.
So after reading a little bit about World War II I was intrigued by the idea of the victory gardens that the governments encouraged the citizens of the US to invest in. I like the idea of the country as a whole eating better and growing their own produce and canning their own foods. Awesome.
I was encouraged and challenged so I decided I would try my hand at this new venture. I cheated a little bit and went to our farmers market and purchased a couple of plants from some of our local growers. I then went and purchased several seeds as well. Just so I can say that I started some of the plants on my own.
I decided to clean out this out weed infested patch of land and start our very own little garden. So far we have several different types of chilis, all the herbs I use in the kitchen and a couple medicinal plants as well.
So much fun….I am thinking my garden needs a little bunting that says “Victory Garden”.
Any ideas on fertilizer or compost????
