Our Garden isn’t Doing Great

We said we would give an update on the garden so here it is. Our garden isn’t doing great which is kind of a bummer. We had so many seedlings ready to be planted and there was cold weather the week after we planted which has killed off many of our plants. The tomatoes, onions, some peppers, and garlic are still hanging on and doing okay. Bea and I have a plan to plant the leftover seeds into the ground once it gets consistently warmer. We think our biggest mistake was not acclimating them for long enough. Gardening is a learning process and we’re figuring things out as we go. Bea and I have hopes that we can revive what is left and start on some new seeds. I don’t have any updated pictures because quite honestly our garden doesn’t look much different than it did before. For now we will continue to water, pray for sun, and wait out the last few cold days of spring.

Please enjoy these cute pictures of our cats.

Dear Reader…

Welcome to our brand new blog! We are Dylan and Bea. What they don’t tell you about starting a blog is how awkward it is to write your first post… Nevertheless, here we are.

We’re a couple of 20-somethings, trying to make the most out of life while navigating unfamiliar and exciting waters. We are both interested in gardening, budgeting, and like everyone else on the internet, cats. Over the past couple of summers we have been exploring the world of gardening and homesteading. We want to eventually make it to the point that we are living sustainably; utilizing our garden to, among other things, help save money and having the satisfaction of eating what we’ve grown.

We’re creating this blog to document our journey to sustainable and debt-free living. We plan on posting weekly updates about our experiences and maybe a couple pictures of our cats. Join us as we share our adventures and do our best to live happily and healthily.

Piper and Bear respectively
