Homestead Life (2)
What are we going to grow this year? That was the question that I had to answer when planning out our first year's garden at the new acreage. And like many overly-excited new gardeners, I may have gone a little over the deep end. From plotting out my exact garden plan in Excel, to charting out my seed-starting dates, transplanting dates, and likely first harvest dates, I was all-in.
When I was young, I can remember poring over the seed catalogs that showed up at our house each spring, dreaming of all the vegetables and flowers I would one day grow.
