Being self-sufficient is a wonderful thought, here is a small attempt at making this happen. Also, ensuring that you get fresh, gluten free food. I planted 4 zuchinni plants, 2 yellow squash plants, 2 cucumber pickle plants, 1 patio tomato and 1 square of carrot seeds and 5 “big boy” tomato plants. The patio tomato plant had tomatoes on it when we got it, so at least I am assured of one producing plant. Nothing else is producing, yet. But, this morning I see that the yellow squash have blossoms! Super excited about that. The squash plants have some white spots on them, which may be from watering on top of the plants. I treated them with milk spray, yes, cow milk. So I am hoping that that will help and this won’t be a problem that keeps the plants from producing.
I also bought a strawberry plant at Sam’s club and my mom bought some online which were the dormant roots that you plant.
So far we have harvested two (yes 1, 2) strawberries. I have high hopes for these plants and will
probably need to repot some of them individually soon.
I also have a few herbs: pineapple sage, thyme and lemon balm. I really hope to grow quite a few more herbs. My mom has a rosemary bush that we dug up and brought over when we moved and it is doing marvelous.
