I looked out and Alyssa was working in the garden in the rain. She planted broccoli, onions and several other young plants out there. Gloria and I figured out what we wanted to eat this year, how much, and how often, and the gardeners job is to make that happen, conditions permitting. This will be a learning year for us, and we will be thinking about next year, what more we could grow to offset what we buy. The long term goal is to grow as much of the things we eat on our property as possible and supplement what we don’t or can’t grow with things from local growers. Lofty goal, but getting closer.
