A BIG leafy garden post

I had big garden plans for this year! I wanted a huge garden with rows and rows of vegetables that I could freeze and can and preserve for the year. 

My dreams half way came true...


It started with picking out a place to start the garden, I wanted it close to the open top well so that I could do some sort of drip line watering system....

The watering system turned out to be me schlepping around hoses all Summer. Hopefully next year I can arrange and implement a drip line system utilizing the open top well.

I fenced off a good size plot, using material that I had here on the property. 


Then I spent the next couple months rototilling...I think I tilled up the area a total of 4 or 5 times over the Spring. And I'll probably do it a couple more times this Fall.

I started lots of seeds indoors, most of which didn't make it out in the garden.

What did make it was:

Pumpkins....a plenty...

fall decor

porch decor

Spaghetti squash

Gypsy peppers

Jalapeno peppers

Big red tomatoes

little red tomatoes

Big yellow tomatoes

little yellow tomatoes

Zucchini...and zucchini and ...zucchini...



Along with our faithful raspberry bushes, handful by handful...

I had a great time in the garden this year, lots of veggies consumed and weeds pulled. I am ready to put it to bed for the season, but am excited for next year!
