Began cleaning up the garden for winter planting. I recently read one guy saying gardening is just for day to day stuff but you need to have a farm if you are going to survive in the long term. I tend to agree with this, if we are truly going to survive on what we grow and raise. I have been experimenting with what we grow for 10 plus years. The real test is to grow what we can use and not let a bunch go to waste. So because of all this I will be increasing our growing area by about double. I got approval from the War Department to purchase a “new” used tractor which I will pick up the first of November. This will really enable me to get the place in shape.
