As I read and watch videos from homesteaders, one of the things that I have heard several times is, “Do what you can where you are”. So like a good apprentice, I started to think of what I can do while I wait, learn, and plan. From a city dweller’s point of view, there is just so much to learn that you can actually get overwhelmed. But one thing I can do now is plant a garden. I am currently in Zone 10 so it still gets warm here. So during this winter break, I have decided to work on two projects. Planting a garden and making my own pizza dough from scratch!! This is in efforts to stop paying $18 for New York style pizza.
While going through the Baker Creek catalog, I had to keep reminding myself of the golden rule, “grow what you eat”. Below is an image of what we will be growing in a little area my husband prepared for us. While at Home Depot, the kids also got to pick one thing each that they would like to grow as well. Wish us luck!!
As I embark on this journey, I can’t help but to think about God’s amazing design of making the land that produces fruit and within that fruit or from the plant itself to produce even more seeds to keep life going on Earth. It’s just amazing. Praise God!!
