Where to get good nutrition? My garden of course!

One of our dreams of moving more into the "country" was to not only have our own chickens (eggs and meat), but also to have a big garden.  Although I am a certified Master Gardener, my husband is the true gardener to heart.  In reality, he is actually a soil enthusiast, and the vegetables are his prize.  He takes special care of the soil ensuring the right microbes, bacterias, enzymes, nutrients, macro nutrients, micro nutrients, etc. are all aligned correctly.  

And this is what you get when it is done correctly.... LOTS and LOTS of beautiful plants:


We have been eating broccoli and cauliflower every single day for about 2 weeks now.   So yummy steamed with Kerrygold butter! 



Compost is essential for great soil!  

MMMMMM...... Cabbage! 

Dropping the Beat.... I mean BEETS! 

Soon to be sweet potatoes galore:

Thanks for visiting!

Week 36 Results!

I cannot believe it has been 9 months since I started this journey.  Although I haven't lost as much weight as most people report losing, I HAVE lost weight.  And for me, part of the journey is learning and growing, which I have done tremendously.  I have learned a lot of things about myself - physically and mentally.  Had I just stuck to it straight and narrow, and lost a ton of weight like everyone else, I don't think I could have learned all these lessons at the same time.  I have to make my own "Mistakes" to learn, and I have successfully done that quite a few times.  

Thank you for your support.  The messages I get weekly are extremely helpful and motivating.
