I planted a bunch of seeds.
And then, it started raining, and I went inside.
And when it stopped raining ...
They're not visible, yet, but corn and beans were planted in the bed with the trellis ... so that maybe they'd have a fighting chance of survival against the sunchokes and milkweed.
The spinach-chia tower. Broccoli and carrots were planted in the top of each. It looks like there's a couple of yummy meals-worth of spinach ready to enjoy :).
I finally found something that will grow in the tires - nasturtiums, hubbard squash and beans. I wish all my beds were as prolific.
Last year, we raised around 800 lbs of food (including chickens and eggs). This year, we're hoping for more ... and we'll be adding foraged food to our overall "food self-sufficiency" totals.
Some day, I'd like to see our total exceed a ton of food. Now, wouldn't that be impressive! 2000 lbs of food grown on a quarter acre in a place with a five-month growing season.
Reckon we'll need to grow heavier food ... like hubbard squash and potatoes ;).
