It all started out small...

My little family love to eat fresh vegetables. We put vegetables to almost everything like our soups, stir frys, salads as well as juicing. After I had our baby girl, we strive to be able to provide her the freshest fruits and vegetables that we can get a hold of.

With my passion for  plants and with my hubbys super strength, with the current economy, we joined hands and  decided that we should start a garden. We found just the perfect spot to grow. My moms weedy backyard! After we got the GO! signal, my husband started digging the ground. He made me 4 raised bed garden and 4 plots. We prepped the soil with some composts from his boss backyard. While all that is cooking, I ordered the seeds and started germinating them.

I also started vermicomposting. I got my first red wrigglers from a friend who also have a sustainable garden but I thought it might not be enough so I ordered from they have a sping sale with their 2000ct worms. They are now lively and wiggling happily in my compost bins. I also have noticed plenty of fresh vermipods so, I'm excited! :)

I used to plant with only composting and vermicomposting. This year, I am trying companion planting, composting, vermicomposting and biointensive gardening for the first time so I'll see how this goes. I have encountered a lot of very informative websites that details about each method. I thought, since it's all earth friendly, Why not do it all together? If you think about it, with nature, everything goes.

I also saw the movie "Back to Eden" which spark the idea of combining all the methods. A very inspirational movie or should I say documentary.

There is so much to learn about gardening and the environment and I am excited to learn new things and be able to share. I currently dont have any pictures to share but I will have a few soon.

See you all next time ;)
