Less of an actual blog this time – more an explanation of the goals for 2022.
We usually feature a garden goal. The main garden patch is on sabbatical this year. Partly because Terry plans to take a six- week sabbatical during garden season and partly because garden soil needs an occasional break. The main garden patch is currently sown in wheat. A local farmer who helped us by planting the grain will harvest it. We will bail the straw and sell it – money to be donated to local feeding ministries. The upper garden patch will be planted in non-cucurbits – probably peppers and/or cabbage – as a matter of fungus control. These vegetables will still go to local ministries and the church pantry but won’t make the goals list this year. In the Fall, both patches will be sown in rye which will be turned under in Spring of 2023 and the garden will be ready to go back into full production.
