On this page I will be posting tips I have gotten from my brother-in-law, whom I affectionately call Farmer Pat. and a list of seeds and plants I need to purchase for the garden. My sister was bragging today about how well his garden does, and the size of his peppers, so he must be doing something right,lol.
I have started out with a small potager. Last year it did excellent, but this yr, it produced very poorly, and with the price of foods going up, I plan to put out a much bigger garden next year. However i am relatively new to vegetable gardening.
The Mittleider Gardening Method: This method is listed in BOLD because I am so excited about it. I have been researching this style gardening for many months. I couldnt find even one bad comment bout it from anyone who has tried it. People are raving about the health of their garden pants and the huge yields they now get. It was developed by dr. Jacob Mittleider after many years of hard work and research in many countries. They also offer free seminars if your in the area where they are held. The most important aspect of this method is the fertilizing plan. Everything else can be done as you can. Check it out, do your own research and follow me along here on my journey with this method, as I document my results.
