Gardening 2015: Take One
Here is what our garden looked like on July 16th.
Here was our garden on August 7th.
Overall, things are doing okay! The squash bugs, cucumber beetles, potato bugs, Japanese beetles, blight and the like have been frustrating, but haven't won. I've calculated 177 pounds of produce that I've brought into my house thus far. Last year, we had 250 pounds. I'm confident we'll surpass that given we haven't brought in all the tomatoes, potatoes, squash and pumpkins as of yet, and they can add the poundage! Each day I'm trying to make a homemade meal and preserve something. Lots of drying of kale and herbs and then canning and freezing whatever else I can do.
