Update 6
Update 7

Here's what the garden looked like on August 8th:
 And here's the garden on August 22nd
 Well, this garden.

It officially has produce MORE than double the produce compared to last year.  I currently have brought in 519.5 pounds of produce.  That includes a lot of our squash and sugar pumpkins...those squash bugs are mighty frustrating.  They got all of my winter squash as well as my zucchini and summer squash.  Tomatoes have blight, but I'm still bringing in baskets full of them.  There's an annoying tiny yellow fuzzy bug that ate our beans.  Some potatoes are turning brown and are ready to dig.  Weeds are tall and everywhere, I have given up taking care of them.  Even with all that, our basement is filling up with the goodness. Canned food, squash storage. Our pantry has many dried goodness too. And our bellies are filled with our own produce.  Especially since adding the milk cow, it's been so much more possible having nearly all parts of our meals homegrown.
 The first of many bags full of pumpkins and winter squashes.

 The sunflowers they planted on eco day.
 Proud that this was all that was left a few days ago.  Umm....yeah. There's more now.
 Seriously, the best helpers ever.

 Tell me, how is your garden doing? I do love garden talk...

  2. Oh wow! Just look at it all. 519.5lbs of produce is to me with my teeny tiny hobby garden absolutely mind-blowing. It all looks fabulous, will that last you all the way through the winter?
