Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
My lot in town, is my garden. My house is just in the way. I have been groing a good amount of food here for a number of years. I grow the staples but I have tried everything. I grow hydroponicly in my basement, which is also my mushroom lab and grow room. I have raised beds for root crops. I love root crops as food more than any other. Turnips, beets, carrots, parsnips and such. To me, a meal is created by going out back, brushing away the snow and pulling back the plastic and digging out some carrots, turnips and parsnips. Then, peeling and cleaning and simmering them in just a little butter with a lid on. Oh yummy!!!!! I have also started beekeeping. I spent one winter reading everything I could find on bees. Now I have six hives and growing. I want to raise my own queens next year and do splits on all my hives. That means twelve hives, if everything goes well.
