Swapping the Vegetable Garden With the Cutting Garden

This year, Ryan McCallister, my gardener, and I decided to take a whole new approach to how we grow vegetables and flowers for cutting.  As you may know from reading this blog, I have a large fenced in area near the greenhouse where we've been growing vegetables all these years.  Further away, next to the chicken coops, is another large fenced in garden, which has been called the cutting garden.  Sadly, for various reasons, the cutting garden never received the attention it required and I was never happy with its production.  The vegetable garden also had its issues.  Rather than face another growing season of the same dilemmas, we decided to swap locations and shake things up a bit.  Here's the first blog about these big changes.
