A week late is better than never, right?
Our garlic was supposed to be planted by Columbus Day, but I forgot. Then, I received a notification that our Jerusalem artichokes had shipped, and since those were due to be planted at the land too, maybe it was a good thing I forgot.
After school on Tuesday, we packed up and drove to the land, where I marveled at how quickly weeds will grow.
After hacking down the honey locusts attempting to control the drive, we hacked the foot + tall weeds (yes, next year, we'll be planting a cover crop. Immediately. after. digging. potatoes... speaking of which, we uncovered another 2 pounds).
Then we planted our artichokes, garlic, and tree onions. I love planting, freshly dug ground, and doing something to further our self-sufficiency goal.
Until next time, remember, this is not paradise. It's Purgatory Ranch.
