We had not the best growing season last year, but for the most part, my yard and garden still looked pretty good! These pics show how things looked one year ago!
The plants I starts from seed in the house. I think I started seeds and of February last year. This picture was June, shortly before plants were moved out.
Bringing them in at night became a little cumbersome! Yeah, I had a couple pretty big tomatoes!
Planting the tomatoes the first week of June.
A cucumber and watermelon that were just planted alongside some marigolds to attract the bees!
Conditioned bales ready to be planted!
The Garden worked and ready for planting and the strawberry and raspberry patches.
The children hitting the strawberries mid June for the first big picking!
A shot of the yard in mid July to show the tree growth!Notice in the bottom right corner, that is the first year of my herb garden! I tossed a couple veggies in there too - there is a beautiful head of cauliflower ready to pick (click to make the photo big!)!
A picture of our current rain barrel system for collecting water to keep the plants happy!
Our composters with some extra stuff in the middle waiting to go in!
End of August, the garden and the bales. It was a cold summer and that area where the garden looks bare, yeah, that is my cucumber patch!
Our first potato harvest from the bales! We were very pleased!!
Fall Cleanup. Hubs working the garden with piles of clippings ready to return to the top of the garden to spend the fall and spring composting. Notice all that awesome partially composted straw from the bales getting tossed in the dirt!
A little Autum color!
My little girl picking through the "mountain strawberries" in October! They produce until the snow buries them!
