A Time to Sow!For the next few weeks, I will be talking about some of my favorite topics - gardening, how our garden is progressing, and sharing ideas and fun garden tips! This first post is an introduction to our garden, and where my husband and I live. For those of you who do not know the geography of Southern California, there is an area east of L.A. called the High Desert.
There are lots of small towns and plenty of fresh air. Tall, craggy mountains line the skyline and dirt paths wind through the desert terrain and can lead anywhere or nowhere. This is where we live, and and where our garden thrives.
So, you ask, why do we garden? For for a lot of reasons! It not only provides plenty of invigorating exercise, it also brings us lots of joy as we see new greens spring to life. In the long run, this garden will bring in a huge amount of food that will save those dollars on our grocery bill. I can't tell you how much I love looking out our window at the fresh bright plants poking out of the ground.
The beauty of it is we are constantly learning as we go. Of course we have had some issues to work out due to heat, lack of nutrition in the soil, and other challenges. As we learn about each plant in our garden we know we have a chance to bring beauty and life back to the soil on our land.
We are planning and expanding our seasonal planting times in order to have veggies all year long. Right now, we have quite a lot of plants growing, but over the next few weeks, we will also be planting seeds at different times to provide a variety of food over a span of months. Our goal is to plant everywhere on our property, including fruit trees AND a greenhouse.
For this series on the EVE blog, we would love to dialog and support other gardeners. If you have comments, questions or a garden story you would like to share, please let us know in the comments!
Hope you all have a fantastic spring day!
