updates from the garden
The garden is growing. There are beautiful green plants where seeds were planted. Some sown directly like corn and all the greens and some we started indoors.
We have 4 large pots of corn
Here's cantaloup grown from saved seeds.
our heirloom tomatoes
raised bed Lance built by collecting stray rocks from around the property
oooohhhh... there's a lady bug hanging out
salad greens, carrots, parsnips
Wild mushrooms I found out here. Since I don't know what kind or if they are edible
I think we will leave them alone.
there are 3 distinctly different shapes.
neat DOF photo in the raised bed
Since May is our blogs first year anniversary month I was hoping to celebrate in a big way with great photos of all our success. As I looked back through the images from this time last year I realized we're actually growing slower now than before.
We've had plenty of rain and since we're out in the tress we're realizing we don't get nearly enough sun so the process is slow and I'm practicing having more patience than I think I do.
There's also a gang of teenage chipmunks that have destroyed my herb garden I have growing out front.
I can hear them all day along with the birds. They are all just laughing at me.
Okay... I'm not sure how to end this.
