Wide Earth Smallholding

Wide Earth Smallholding

And Allaah has made for you the earth a wide expanse.(Qur'aan- 71:19)

Garden Update (end of Rajab -begining of June)

This is quick update on our garden efforts – efforts still being done by distance right now.

QadrAllaah we still are not onsite at the house where we have set up our garden beds nor do we have water onsite there yet. We are presently bringing water from an adjacent building by bucket and tending the garden daily. Alhamdulillah there are a number of successes in light of this, and the greatest is continuing on to the best of our ability for Allaah’s pleasure alone in an endeavor that we see as beneficial for us and our family.

Our experimental hugelkuture bed with potatoes is also doing well. One of the concerns I had was adequate drainage because of the strength of the downpours and storms here in Missouri, but alhamdulillah the raised beds are draining quickly, and well while still retaining water in the soil mixture. It is the beginning of the growing season (we had some surprise snow just over a month ago) and our only regular harvest is lettuce which exploded back in the first week after harvesting some of their outer leaves.  But we pray that there is much more to come. And the success is with Allaah.
