My garden is inspired by many homestead gardens. I sincerely thank Jess and Miah on Roots and Refuge Farm, Pat and Heidi on Rain Country Homestead, and Kevin and Sarah on Living Traditions Homestead for sharing their knowledge with the rest of us.
So are you wondering how I got here? I haven’t had a green thumb for very long, my tries at keeping plants alive were fairly poor and it wasn’t for lack of trying. I just really didn’t get how to take care of them. It took a trip down the rabbit hole learning about the nation’s food industry that I decided to gave it another try and I bought one plant.
My kids and I made sure the plant was watered every other day and she didn’t get too cold and had enough sun. If she could survive a year with me, I would get a few more.
So a year later even though I had no idea what I was doing, I bought a few more, I put them in containers and gave them plenty of water and sun.
Looking for assistance, I read blogs and watched what I could find, and then I found homestead channels on youtube. <<< I have learned a lot from them not just about taking care of plants but what else they can give us beside food. My garden has gone from 1 to a few to now well over 100. Are you like me? It is never too late, just go for it! Start with 1 or 2 plants and go from there. Check out those that inspired me and check out my posts maybe they will inspire you too. So glad you came The BusyMama and The BusyMama Garden. #raincountryhomestead #livingtraditionshomestead #rootsandrefugefarm
My teachers- they don’t know it but I have been learning a lot from each of them. Please go visit their websites and their youtube channels.
