This year my goal is to grow 2,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. I think I can do it. With 16 raised garden beds, a greenhouse, a raspberry patch and a few more planting beds sprinkled throughout our property, I think growing 2,000 pounds of food is an attainable goal. Even if I do live right in the middle of high maintenance suburbia.
Sweet potato slips were planted this week. This is our first year growing them. If you have any advise about growing sweet potatoes I should know about, please leave a comment below. ♥ Mavis

Have you seen the documentary Ingredients? The Girl and I plan on watching it this weekend. It looks good. I’m especially excited to hear what the “flip flops” lady has to say.
