Homesteading is largely about being self sustainable and the kids are learning this well. They love gardening and wanted to a vegetable garden update. They know that a large portion of their food comes from the garden vegetables and plants. While we do some foraging and wild harvesting, we also grow a large portion of our food here on the homestead. The kids are doing great at growing their vegetables. They grow corn, beets, zucchini, peas, beans, winter squash, okra, cucumbers, and so much more. They grow their garden organically without herbicides or pesticides. We are going to try the natural herbicide at some point and see if that works ok or not. The have not had to water much at all with all this rain! Everything is staying so nice and green. We just planted our sweet potato slips today and will plant more as they are ready to plant. We love sweet potatoes. Each one of the kids is becoming quite the gardener planting their own favorite plants and vegetables. The boys pumpkins are doing great and the girls corn and cucumbers are really going to town.
