Victory Garden

In 1943, 20 million gardens were producing 8 million tons of food. Think about that. 

Think about how comforting, safe, and secure that would be right now in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. What if before the pandemic, you had your own victory garden already installed and established? If you had access to a garden, producing some of your food then you could reduce or avoid having to go to the grocery store or mega-mart. You would also have the best tasting produce possible, the most nutritious produce is possible, at the closest possible location to you – your house! 

I realize not everyone has the luxury of space to grow a garden, but that obstacle should not stop you from getting involved in a garden. You typically have a friend or two that has backyard space that you may be able to start a collaborative garden space. Alternatively, you may be able to find a space at a local community garden. Some community gardens require a monthly fee, while some you may be able to volunteer labor hours in exchange for some produce. Gardening, if done improperly, can also be a lot of work and provide a disappointing yield. Gardening, if done properly, using the correct tools, methods, and knowledge, gardening can be a social, fun, successful, and rewarding activity. But, where should you start? 

At Yummy Tummy Farms, we are big advocates for getting educated and moving forward with a well-thought-out plan. Do you want to have a do-it-yourself garden where you read or take classes then take action? Do you want to hire an expert that specializes in edible landscapes to get you started? No matter which option you choose they both have similar considerations worth thinking about.

If you are considering getting involved in planting your own #Victory #Garden then please consider the following:

  • What is the purpose of your garden?
  • What is your budget like? 
  • What type of climate do you have?
  • What is your soil like? 
  • How much time do you have to dedicate to your garden?

Yummy Tummy Farms offers classes, consultations, garden installations, and on-going garden maintenance and management. For more information, call 408-320-5365 or email us at yummytummyfarms@gmail.com
