I found this site through BackYardChickens, where I have the same name on all the sister sites. My husband, elderly mother and I just moved into a house on 6.5 acres. We were going to start a small raised bed garden this spring, but then I had to have back surgery. We ended up planting a bunch of onions in a Green Stalk vertical planter and some directly into the ground. Just to have planted SOMETHING. LOL Some of them seem to be growing, not sure any of them are ready to harvest yet. It was experimental and we knew that we'd probably not be able to take care of them. Hoping we can at least plant something after July to have a fall/winter garden. But for now we're focusing on getting some chickens. We have lots of plans for our land! Excited to get started, even though I'm delayed quite a bit, I know that when I've fully recovered, gardening and tending animals will be great exercise!
