Not specifically today, but this season for sure. We've been doing some sample crops this year to get a feel for vegetable and fruit production efforts. I have twelve 4ftx30ft beds that we'll be gradually expanding into over the coming seasons. Started building out the greenhouse this spring and we'll be adding the apiary next spring. We've been harvesting some tomato varieties the past couple weeks and now starting to get canteloupe, bell peppers, okra, eggplant, and watermelon. Pumpkin and green beans are taking off, but not yet producing anything. Eventually we'll be dedicating half/whole beds to specific crops or sister crops. Navaho blackberries are in the ground for next season. Currently we're using a mixture of homemade compost (litter from chickens, pigs and goats + time) and our mulch piles from 3 years ago that have broken down by almost 2/3rds into some really nice soil and growing material.
Lots to do, as we're combining garden design + infrastructure + planting in parallel, but the exercise has helped inform decisions for the future and validate/break ideas I had before we planted anything.
Big wins are that we're starting to eat some really flavorful and quality products, the goats and poultry have not penetrated the perimeter, and we've been able to implement some sustainability practices in harmony with our animal husbandry efforts. This whole experiment started 5 years ago and has been a wonderful growth opportunity for morgan, me, and the girls. The daily chores have been an absolute blessing during these tumultuous times, absolutely minimizing the disruptive impact to any sense of normalcy. We already home school, we've got wide open spaces in which to play and breathe, and we've gradually worked towards a more modest lifestyle these past years. So while not actively "prepping" for these types of situations, we were certainly more prepared than many in our area. I find that to be gratifying.
