Growin’ North


Despite all of our setbacks this year, our goal for expanding the woodland garden was quite successful. We not only doubled the number of containers we planted, but we doubled our potatoe garden and added a small blueberry patch.

The pallet fence turned out way better than expected but was quite labor intensive. Too bad we are planning on expanding once again!! There just doesn’t seem to ever be quite enough, especially thinking in terms of preserving, eating fresh and selling at market.

This fall we had the hole excavated for our future root cellar. That’s a project for next year. It will have to go to the bottom of the list! I will keep you posted, however.

I almost forgot, Growin’ North is our newest venture. It is our simply grown organic produce and homegoods along with our newly added oyster mushrooms that we take to market during growing season here in the north woods. Next year we hope our learning curve is smaller and our expertise grows larger.
