The Growing Challenge

We have decided to participate in The Growing Challenge next year. The requirements are simple.

1. Grow one additional type of fruit or vegetable than you did last year, and grow it from seed.
If rule #1 is not enough of a challenge for you, you may make your own rules.
Post about gardening once each week.
Check in every week at 1 Green Generation.
When signing up, make sure to include your zone and where you’re located.

More specific guidelines are available when you sign up. Since we already grow our garden, mostly, from seed and save a lot of seed, we will add a new challenge. Next year we want to extend our growing season using hoop houses and, hopefully, a green house. This will move us closer to our goal of self-sufficiency and eating only what we have raised, grown, hunted or traded for locally. I encourage everybody to grow a garden and join in the challenge.
