My Winter Plantation
The time is right. The weather is perfect. Tis the season for planting right in our backyard. I'm talking about my garden..not your typical garden . This is my first plunge into the growing popular frozen vegetable gardening.
No reason to worry about insects or slugs or horn worms or even rabbits (albeit we don't get many around here). My wife and I had our soil analyzed by the New York City hydroponic and pyrotechnical professionals with their green and radiated thumbs. Our soil is teeming with frozen earthworms and microbes and has the right mixture of ingredients: 50% compost and 60 % topsoil. The extra 10% is over the top.!!! Our fertile frozen soil also consists of organic matter such as compost leaves and shredded aged bark.
My wife and I have carefully selected some frozen vegetables we both like offering a variety we can make a delicious healthy frozen vegetable medley from. I will be planting some iconic Green Giant corn and peas, Birds Eye carrots, and Sea Brook spinach. My wife is into a bit more natural frozen vegetables. Planting her frozen veggies will include Cascadian Farms edamame and Pictsweet squash.
These frozen brands selected I am planting we chose believing they are the highest of quality. Being frozen ,they are less likely to incur many of the diseases and contaminants that typical vegetables might be subject to. Even snow won't harm our delicious beautiful growing frozen vegetables.
Next year I'll be planting frozen potatoes too. I've yet to clear a space where our giant Redwood tree stands. I can't wait until the spring when our frozen garden of eating vegetables will be ripe for picking.
