Organic food from our garden is an important part of our diet, and a way to make delicious food more affordable. So, tending our mature asparagus bed is a vital part of our gardening. Our continued Organic Garden Experiment At BrainStorm Acres Homestead is the latest of our 14 year experiment of living off grid in Northern Arizona. We strive to make our lives more sustainable by using solar power, wind power, local resources, and careful, thoughtful purchases. We collect water from rainwater catchments that are stored in our cisterns. We use foraged food when it’s available. Our objective is to grow more of our own food for dietary reasons, and the security of knowing how our food has been raised. We are sustainable with a limited number of plants, and are working towards greater self sufficiency. We are embarking on a new gardening year. One that relies on our raised wicking beds and our off grid greenhouse. BrainStorm Acres challenge is multiplied since we are off grid relying on solar power and water catchment. Thanks for joining us on our continuing journey. Take care.

    Good looking maters Mrs Irene, do y'all mulch your maters in to retain moisture? Dan

    Great updates Irene. I like the idea of mapping your beds. I hope all the seeds do well in your desert environment.
