We are looking forward to spring here at the Homestead. One of our major projects this year is to expand our garden. Last year we had an incredible garden. The Most High blessed us with an abundance of vegetables. But the deer and other animals got their fair share as well!
So this year we will be installing a fence around the entire garden. It will be a big project as we have a HUGE garden. We will also be adding more garden boxes and growing a bunch of different stuff this year. One of the things that I missed last year was our corn. It got completely hammered by the deer. I also want to do some potatoes as well.
We will be making an investment in a rototiller for the back of the tractor. We have a nice rototiller that has served us well, but it is a lot of work to put in a big plot. Especially when the dirt is untilled. We are planning to expand our ground plots this year and we also have a lot of manure that we want to rototill in. Last year it was a lot of work to work the manure into the ground with our old rototiller.
This year we will also be adding more pasture for our sheep and goats as we will be expanding the herd. We are looking to begin our years long dream of selling goats milk products and sheep spun wool products. It is an exciting time!
The Most High has blessed us so much and we praise His name! We have some more VERY exciting news we will be sharing soon. Stay tuned!
