Getting The Small Homestead Ready For Spring / Seasons End Of Winter / Food Gardening & Harvesting

Updated: Jul 1, 2023

Getting the small homestead garden ready for Spring / Seasons End Of Winter / Food Gardening & Harvesting

It’s the very end of Winter and it’s starting to get exciting.

The sun came out and It is time to sow vegetable and herb seeds, plant fruit trees in the ground, transplant fruit trees into pots, set up the fish pond, re-pot tomato seedlings, harvest Winter veggies, weed the veggie garden around vegetables and hang the last gate..... I am loving the warm sunshine on my skin and am looking forward to the Spring finally arriving, here at Moat Cottage, we are nearly there!

The Lilly Pilly Plants I am now growing in pots are Syzgium Cascade and they are Psyllid resistant and native to Australia.

The tree I planted in the ground is a Feijoa, also known as Pineapple Guava.

Happy Homesteading Friends

Welcome to Moat Cottage Homesteading, I'm Elissa and here at Moat Cottage, we raise and grow and process some of our own free range meat, organic vegetables and fruit. We grow all of our herbs for both eating and medicinal purposes as well as hunt, fish and forage.

Our goal each season is to preserve our produce for the year ahead by canning, dehydrating, fermenting and freezing and we work on being prepared for emergency situations.

Avoiding single use plastic, chemicals and artificial fragrances is important to us and we are trying to live an older style life, balanced with this modern world.
