Good morning and happy spring! Over here it has officially sprung and that means a couple of things for us. Turkey hunting and getting our gardens ready. Fishing makes the list but we would rather start that when the storms have passed and it is a little warmer.
Last week a powerful tornado hit in and around our county. The effects were detrimental and much of our time has been dedicated to providing relief to the families that were affected. Until they have been cared for, fishing is the last thing on our minds. Yes, with the storms out of the way and plenty of extra land to clean up, getting our gardens ready is the next step in restoring our land!
Planting a garden is one of the best ways to keep land. It looks good, sure, but it also helps keep the area healthy year round and cuts down the cost of groceries for a while. Not to mention the fresh herbs or tomatoes that are still hot from the sun when you eat them. There are few other ways God can show his glory quite like that!
We like to till the land in different ways year round but gardening is our favorite way to do it. We plant corn, tomatoes, herbs, and squash — there’s no one secret to it because everyone has their own way. Generally, we like pound stakes into the ground to keep tomatoes sturdy and run lines to keep corn growing straight. We make sure to add a helping of hydrogen and ____. But one of the real tips? Try cycling out where you keep your chickens over the year — in the garden area when there is nothing growing and out of it when there is. Smelly as it may be, IT WORKS.
The weather is getting much better which makes gardening a great family effort — even the dogs get involved. We plant our seeds and collect recipes while the plants grow and the dogs help (or they like to think they help) keep the chickens out of the garden. Through frost and harsh sun and bugs and rain, waiting for the fruit is always worth the reward! We will be posting some of our recipes here as we gain them over the months of gardening.
Whether you are planting a food plot for deer or for your family, we hope you will join us in gardening this year — and don’t forget about our last 3D shoot before it gets hot outside! We will be outside on a nice property in forsyth operating with CAMMO (which you can learn more about here).
