In order to have plants thrive in a successful vegetable garden, healthy soil is key. The idea is that we need feed the soil, not the plant” to create a natural soil without the use of synthetic fertilizers. Compost is one of the very important ways we feed the soil so we make the effort to make lots of compost for our our urban homestead with worm compost, chicken and bunny manure and bokashi.

Campervan meal #1. Kale cesar salad with spicy roasted chickpeas is by far one of my favorite salads that taste so good on a hot day like we’re having here in Arizona.

Too my delight, my dill is flowering so I will freeze them because they are my secret ingredient in my pickles and I will use them later this season when I make pickles 😁
