Big Plans but No Go

This past week my plan to extend our vegetable garden was thwarted by rain, rain, and even some more rain. Naomi and I are hoping to work on it this weekend, so we can enact our expansion plans. The plan is to add two more raise beds to our vegetable garden so that we can increase the amount of food that we are able to grow at home. In the new raise beds we are planning on growing potatoes and onions.

Over the fall we planted garlic for the first time. We planted two varieties a German Hardy that is supposed to be easy to store and keep and one called Georgian Fire. The last one is supposed to have a nice white hot garlic flavor that should be good in salsas and in marinara that needs a little kick.
