Greetings and Welcome...

Greetings and welcome to the Campau Garden Journey. My name is Timothy Campau and my wife is Shannon. We live in Holland Michigan with 2 dogs and no kids. The idea behind this blog is to help us keep track of what we have been doing with our city lot (primarily vegetable) garden and to hopefully help and inspire others with what to do, and more likely what not to do when it comes to our garden crops. This is actually the start of our third year pursuing vegetable gardening and we plan to have ten 4x8 raised beds this year. Look for other posts soon giving some of the highlights and pictures from our experience the past couple of years. We will be starting seeds again shortly and growing seedlings in our light rack. (Look for pictures soon.) We believe that God has led us to start vegetable gardening and to be good stewards of everything that he has given us. We want to do everything healthy and organic so we get the most value we can from our food. At this point we have not had very good success in what we have harvested but are continuing to look for better and more efficient ways to get the most out of our garden. We will be trying some new things and ideas to help warm the soil and jumpstart our crops as well as better protection from the critters and pests (including our dogs!) but more on that later.

Thanks for reading and God bless.
