Garden 2018 update 1
Well, it's growing! Weeds and all. This year I was doing pretty well with weeds for some time and then...BOOM. It's harvest time. I typically get about a half hour of gardening in between after my kids go to bed and when it gets dark. I just am not able to harvest and weed in that short time. Oh well. I have harvested nearly 80 pounds of produce thus far, so that's not too bad. I can see pretty quickly that this size garden isn't big enough to feed five of us hungry hippos year round. In years past, I'd pick a big bowl of beans and we'd eat half, I'd freeze half. And now my kids eat the other half before I can preserve it. Except for raspberries, I suppose. We cannot eat two pounds of raspberries day after day I have found. I have happily been putting them in the freezer! Anyway, welcome to the jungle.
Pulled off the first zucchini and tomatoes.
Wow! You are bursting at the seams, girl! What a blessing.ReplyDelete
