Our Resistance Garden will be the best garden ever!

Due to the projected rise in food prices we are planning a garden that will sustain us thorough out the year. Our intentions are to far exceed the banner garden of the summer of 2015. Careful planning has gone into this venture with the cancellation of certain summer plans and the installation of a new fence and watering system. A lot of time and energy has gone into it so far, but I am proud to say that for the first time ever, we have the garden 90% installed. I really hope we can keep the momentum going and get in staggered crops. I also really hope that our planned road trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan doesn't completely clash with the early August Harvest. Our fingers will be crossed!

Tomatoes on right, two of peppers, amaranth, kale, lettuce, peas and beans to right.
