We had a very productive and successful summer thanks to Jim Kennard (President of The Food for Everyone Foundation), Youtube’s LDSPrepper (David Gilmore) and their teachings of the Mittleider Gardening Method.
I had many, many reservations leaving my previous home. I had invested a great deal in the landscaping and specifically the garden. It was because of Jim Kennard’s example and inspiration that I knew we could have a successful garden without having to wait another several years for the soil to build up.
We moved into this property in April and it wasn’t until the end of June that we had the infrastructure in place to start gardening. In our very short growing season, we were able to harvest and can
- several jars of green beans, corn, and pumpkin.
- We harvested several pounds of potatoes.
- Many, many watermelons, cantaloupe, and honeydew.
We’ll be able to hit the ground running next spring with the infrastructure already in place and do even better next year. I can hardly wait!
