About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

More planting!

Henry loves to get involved in the planting. I let him decide where each of the broccoli plants should go. I dug wholes every 16 inches and then let him put the pots in the wholes he wanted. It took him forever because he kept reorganizing them, but it was really fun to sit back and watch him!
You can hardly even see the little broccoli leaves coming up out of the ground...but they sure are in there!
We planted some artichokes! Im so excitted about these!! Started from seeds in our little loft, it is so fun to see them finally in the ground!
Potatoes looking good!!
The first 2 beds are Planted!! An assortment of tomatoes, celery, lettuce, onions, basil, chives, peppers, eggplant, more basil (I love basil!), carrots, ummm I think thats it in the first 2 beds.
The 3rd is partially planted with Broccoli, Sage, and Garlic... and the 4th Bed is partially planted with Potatoes, & Peanuts... and the 5th bed is partially planted with Radishes and Lettuce.
And yet there is SOOO much more to plant!!!

LUNCH BREAK!!!! Addie sure loves salad :)
During the kids nap time I went back out and got the spinach in the ground and some more herbs.
And did some more odds and ends around the yard. Well, I better get back at it!
Happy Planting,
