Planting Ideas

We had a beautiful snow storm last week.  A snow so pretty, that we were left without a care in the world about planting season coming!  Thankfully, we got over it a few days later and now our minds are back on our lengthy list of what to plant and when; how much dirt to have trucked in and how soon to begin the newest garden addition.

We have our preliminary list of what we will be planting this year, not in any certain order.  This list is bound to grow and at the same time, some things that I am listing now, may not get planted due to lack of room, time and/or strength!  One thing is for sure though, we begin each year with a preliminary list that we begin with as our foundation.  Each year, we learn so much about new heirlooms and seeds we trade, that we usually double our beginning list easily by mid spring.  We will work at keeping everyone informed of our changes, additions and any and all growing bloopers that will surely come our way!

About Seeds By Faith

Our family homesteads a modest hobby farm in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Living in the Ozark Mountains is at its best...a gift from God; at its and back breaking work, but even then, God's promises are true and our labor is blessed with rewards beyond our imagination. We take one day at a time learning and striving to be "self sufficient" while depending heavily on our good Lord above for strength and wisdom. From our farm, we offer open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO (genetically modified organism) seed from around the world that is grown, organically, in our garden and harvested with our own bare hands.
