This year we had a better harvest. And an even better experience overall. I’ve planted new veggies and even put in a new raised bed.
2019 is coming to an end in less than week. It was a tough and challenging year for me and the family. But we’re doing good and very excited about the new upcoming year. I pray that you’ve had a good year and that your 2020 is full of opportunities and good health.
I wanna share with you some of what has happened on all things Berrios
Starting with my Food Forest project
I followed James Prigioni’s The Gardening Channel on YouTube and did all my planting using my own composting and using wood chips as a mulch. It all worked wonderfully. The soil was covered for about a year and it was pretty fertile. I’m eager to see how much more fertile the soil will be after the winter.
I pruned my maple tree that’s located in the middle of the yard. So now I have more sunlight for the Food Forest.
I planted a few apple trees, a cherry tree, a couple hazelnut trees, two pear trees, an almond tree and peach tree. I’ll add pics and a video soon.
I’m planning on planting a few more trees this coming spring and I’ll be ordering a number of new seeds that I’d like plant.
All in all it was a good second season. I’m looking forward to new things to try and more fruits and vegetables to grow and eat.
Whoever said that gardening was easy and enjoyable was only half right!!!
It is enjoyable but it ain’t easy.
I’m having a great time building the Food Forest and I want to share a little update of what we’ve done so far.
