This week, my family has been very busy planting our vegetable garden. We try to grow enough vegatables and fruits to last us an entire year so have a very large garden; our graden is about 20 feet wide and a 100 feet long.
We started some of our vegetables inside back in the early sprinbg so plant some seedlings. However, most of what we plant is via seed as it's simply easier.
Here in Canada, our growing season generally runs from June to mid October, so there is enough time for most vegetables to be grown directly from seed.
The majority of vegetables and fruits we grow gets frozen for winter use; however, some is dried, dehydrated or canned.
We also grow vegetable and fruits for the hens to eat during the winter as obviously it is hard for them to forage with snow on the ground.
