Wild Gourd Farm

Organic Gardening in St. Louis City

New House, New Farm, New Beginnings

I’d like to offer my apologies for the lack of posts lately. We’re still maintaining our gardens, harvesting, selling, preserving, and re-planting for fall. But a lot of our time has been taken up with our newest venture: buying a house!

We found a house in the city in a great location that sits on a triple lot (13,320 square feet, almost 1/3 acre), completely fenced in. As luck would have it, we’d already been talking with someone in that neighborhood about farming his land (31,800 square feet, about 3/4 acre), just down the alley.

The plan is to use the large lot as our farm and to create an edible food forest, with room for the chickens, dogs, and an outdoor kitchen in our yard. It’s going to be a lot of work, on top of some indoor renovations, but we’re so excited!

    Looks cool. If you ever have mushrooms to spare, let me know! Can’t wait for y’all to get your sprouts growing again.
