A little progress……


First things first. I would like to thank Bren of BGgarden for being the first person to like one of my posts.  It was very encouraging to be noticed almost immediately.  She has a beautiful blog that I am looking forward to exploring.

So, I have come up with a plan for my garden.  It seems very ambitious to me. I know we won’t be able to get it all done before spring planting, but I plan to give it everything I have. Between my full-time job and my husband’s part-time job and continuing job hunt, we have very little time, but I will make this happen! Let me now what you think about it and I would welcome any and all suggestions.Garden plan layout (2)


I fixed my chart so that it was easier to read.  Thanks everyone!!


Inspirations……….how we got to here.


I am Christina.  I am a wife, a mother of two and a grandmother of one.  With that being said, let me tell you how I ended up with this blog.

I have had a “garden” a couple of times over the last few years, but never anything that great. It has been a couple of years since the last time I had the gardening bug, but I could feel it building up.  I purchased a book, to help me learn more about what I was thinking about doing.  That book was The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It by John Seymour.Image

A friend made the comment today that this book had changed me.  I guess he was right.  I have found myself thinking more and more about the things that I want to do for, and with, my granddaughter, Sophie.  I want to give her the experience of playing outside in her bare feet, of digging in the dirt, watching something she planted grow, and having animals around that she is helping to take care of, etc. (She is my little ray of sunshine, if you can’t tell.)

I have also found a wonderful blog that I am going through the archives of. Frühlingskabine Micro-Farm is another of my inspirations.  I can’t wait to get completely caught up. In setting up to follow this blog, I was flipped into WordPress.com, and voila!! here I am.

Thank you for reading my rambling, and I hope you have a lovely week.
