Spring has sprung in Kentucky and we are up to our knees in rich soil preparing our gardens. Farmer Gary taught Zech how to operate the tractor with the tiller attachment and now one of our main gardens is tilled and ready to be plowed. Unfortunately, my camera batteries weren’t charged and I missed those moments on film, but here is a shot of the finished product.
Michaela has a real heart for farming, gardening, and anything country. She has been studying horticulture this year as a freshman in high school as her core science course. For those friends out there that may be curriculum junkies, this is the text we used:
Her first job is to transplant them into larger pots so that they continue growing until they are ready to be put into the actual garden. She has also been busy planning out the rest of the garden and doing some landscape architecture for an herb garden where we will be growing both culinary and medicinal herbs. Some of the dual purpose herbs we are growing are thyme, cilantro, and lavender. Do you know what medicinal value each of these possesses?What are you growing in your garden? Are there special things you would like for us to grow for you to buy straight from the farm? Let us know. We love to hear from you!!
