  1. Homesteading and gardening
    The first time I went to see my plot, it was totally underwater. After digging some trenches and waiting a week it was dry enough to plant. The soil seemed great.

  8. Homesteading and gardening
    Well, I thought I would save tons of money this year by starting seeds indoors and transplanting them. I don't know if I waited too long or planted too soon, but pretty much all of my seedlings have died. :( I still have my eight tomato plants, and I planted some seeds directly in the ground...
