As promised, here are some photos of the garden that we have been working on this past month.
As an adult with my own garden, for years it had been more of a hobby than anything.
A place to escape to, where I knew my children would not follow....
For the past few years, the importance of having a garden has changed for me. I have always believed that we should learn to be self-sufficient, but putting that into action is quite a different story.
This year, I was hoping to have a really great garden. One where we could harvest the bounty and enjoy it for much of the winter.
Well, the weather certainly has NOT cooperated. Too cold. Or too wet. Or too wet and cold.
We are at least a month behind, as my photos will attest to.
Even if you don't think you like asparagus, you will like it fresh.
Green Peppers - starts from the Farmer's Market.
Zucchini - have you ever seen a more pathetic plant?
OK. So call us optimists
(well, you can call my hubby an optimist, since he bought these plants from the garden center)
Do you know what kind of plant this is?
This is a tomatilla plant.
