Food Goals

My goals for the new year:
  • Expand the bio-intensive garden to 400 sq. feet.
  • Establish a large herb bed that's critter-proof.
  • Build a small cold frame.
  • Get enough soaker hoses to adequately cover all the beds.
  • Cook fun, healthy meals with my son, using our garden produce as much as possible.
  • Buy a pressure canner, tomato sieve and other tools to help preserve the harvest.
  • Set up the compost tea bucket with aerators and brew compost tea.
  • Connive my friend John into bringing me another load of manure from his farm.
  • Plant cover crops at the end of the season.
  • Grow tomatoes indoors next winter.
  • Work on limiting refined flour and sugar in my diet.
  • Learn more about wild foods.
  • Shop locally.
  • Research and write about industrial agriculture and related issues.
