In 2010 we designed it, but only got half of the beds made and built up. Lots of shoveling. This year we almost finished the other side. But then the pumpkins took over so I ran out of room. I am trying to convert the raised beds to lasagna beds, it helps with the weeds and makes for some awesome soil full of earthworms.
|Cow elk checking on the tomatoes. Thank goodness for the fence. These are pics of the garden in April when I started the tomatoes. I don't think it is really worth the effort. My tomatoes had a lot of disease by the end of the summer.|
|Don't even look over here ladies. In the forefront are the wall-of-waters. They even kept the tomatoes warm when it snowed on May 1 and got down to 23 degrees.|
|Ivy took all these garden pictures.|
|Harvest time, a little bit of a mess. I meant to plant butternut, but I can't read I guess, so I planted buttercup. It is so good with butter and brown sugar. I swear, 3 plants yeilded 2 wheel-barrel loads. Enough for a family all winter.|
|Cinderellas, my favorite things pumpkins.|
