So many people have looked at our backyard, edible organic gardens and remarked, “I would love to have something like that in my backyard, but…”
The “but” is usually one or more of the following: time, experience, proper yard/soil/sun, etc. Enough people had requested our help to get us thinking…we need a website about this!
With a little more research we realized there are many, many people with a strong desire to grow their own edibles, but just do not know where to start. An edible backyard garden is a great way to get back in touch with nature, know where our foods come from, and how to eat “in season”. Plus, kids and grandkids just love to see things grow and pick their own crops. What better way to get them to eat their veggies!
This website is designed to provide the basics for getting started with an edible garden plus a frequently updated blog that will change with the edible gardening seasons. Our seasons and climate may differ a bit from yours, but you will learn to adjust for that as you read along.
Finally, we will strive to keep our information as simple as possible. Sure, edible gardening can be highly technical, labor intensive, and frustrating. That is just not the way we do it! Our style is to keep it simple, make it easy, and allow Mother Nature to do what she does best. If a certain crop fails to grow so be it. We learn from it and try something different next season. After all, the learning and experimenting are part of the fun. So this is our way of edible gardening and we will show & tell you all about our experiences in the blog. We hope you follow us, share your thoughts, and grow your own too!
