We are trying our hardest to grow as much of our own veggies as we can. In 2014 we tripled our garden space. In 2015 we hope to double or triple that again.
Currently growing tomatoes, onions, beans, bell peppers, carrots, potatoes, blueberries and blackberries.
Not picky on types. Tomatoes are patio, and a heirloom variety that I cannot remember at the moment.
Onions are just sweet yellow onions. We do a lot of sauces and so the tomatoes and onions are very useful.
Our soil is a mix of a few(many) things. Home composting, peat, potting soil, potting mix, leaves, mulch… We are getting great results with the current mix and so we will not changing to much anytime soon.
Currently we are working on installing drip irrigation. I am hoping that this will even out the water bill and the maximize the water usage.
