I utilized rain water and a watering can to wet plants, to conserve water.
I prepared the soil from my compost. I usually add grass cuttings, tree leaves, kitchen scraps to an old metal barrel that I have repurposed, to create the compost. This reduces the need for excess chemical fertilizers.
I have always been interested in growing my own produce. Knowing that this will aid in feeding my family nutritious food has been my motivation. I know that the crops contain no artificial pesticides. I have included my grandchildren in planting this plot so they too may learn some degree of food sustainability.
