My Garden

Posted Wednesday, Aug 31st, 2011 at 7:12pm

My garden is bursting with flowers! I consider myself a vegetable grower not a flower gal, so this is a surprise. Flowers are an after thought. Here are some photos of the garden's progression this year:

Here it is on Feb.11 of this year. The chickens had worked it over pretty good and it was time to pull up the old tomato vines and sunflower stalks.


Here it is later that day after I did some cleaning up:


Then on Feb. 23 we had our only "big" snow of the winter: snow

On April 18 my co-gardener, Jane, and I put down cardboard (to cut down on the weeds) and a few yards of mushroom compost:


And straw on the paths:


Here is the garden on August 25. What a difference a few months make!


Here is a close-up of the morning glories - taken early enough in the day that they are in their purple splendor (the variety is Grandpa Ott's)
