My Vegetable Garden

Woman cannot live on beans alone, as wonderful as they are.  So that’s why I have a vegetable garden.

It’s a little hobby of mine. I’ve had a vegetable garden for 6 years now.  Every year I’ll try something new, but mostly I stick to the tried and true.  Pesticides and herbicides?  No thank you, not in my garden.  Manure and hand weeding.

It’s a family affair.  My husband tilled the garden.  My daughter helped plant. My mother is a gardener extraordinaire so she helps me with everything. Thank you all.  I’ll try not to screw it up this year!

Would you like to take a vegetable garden tour?

Raspberry bushes look ready to pop.  And that’s my mom in the background. Not pictured:  strawberries in a basket.  I’m doubtful about strawberries.  But one must have hope.

Do you have a garden?  What do you like to grow?

    Your garden sounds like mine!! We have (at last count that is) 7 types of tomatoes (4 are heirlooms!), 4 kinds of peppers (including habanero!), groundcherries, romano beans, watermelon radishes, purple carrots, chioggia beets, cucumbers, zucchini, Jerusalem artichokes, rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries, dill, garlic, thyme, lavender, horseradish and an Egyptian onion. I have NO idea what we’re going to do with it all when it’s ready!

    I can’t wait to see what you do with yours!
