It's been an amazing gardening year thus far.
|But I am not sure what to make of the albino squash and cukes.|
Long relatively cool spring with ample rain.
The freezer is full of broccoli, brussel spouts, peas, kohlrabi,
and of course peas.
|The pigs really enjoy all the garden scraps|
There is a big 'ole crock of cabbage fermenting into sauerkraut in the cellar...a new experiment for me ...and the canning has begun.
It has all seemed a bit easier this year.
|corn, pumpkins, limas, butternut and watermelon on the way in the far outer patch|
Perhaps its the experience factor.
Perhaps its the better tools and reworking of layout, water lines and fencing.
|I don't mind weeding. Listening to the songs of the birds and the wind chimes is so soothing.|
Perhaps it is that I have spent more time in the veggie patches as an escape from the elders when needed.
Perhaps it is simply that I love what I do.
