This summer
we have been doing something new...
As a family unit,
we have been learning to garden...
and the results have been nourishing
our hearts,
.
.
our souls,
.
.
and...
..
.
.
.
.
our tummies!!
.

It will be hard to say good-bye
to the flowers
for another winter
BUT,
saying good bye to
fresh vegetables
on the table every night...
THAT will be
a tough row to hoe!
.
Note to self:
First,
That's not for a time yet so,
I won't muddle my mind with such sad thoughts,
instead, I'll encourage our eyes & tummies
to feast while they can :)
& Second,
I think we need to double the greenhouse
for next year
;)

Love the tire planters... great idea. You have a very nice blog.

Heather, aka: Mum said...

Thanks Bruce! The tire planters are growing potatoes (or at least I HOPE they are growing potatoes & not just lushish leaves!) Lots of people do that up here! It's my first attempt though & I fear I put too many seed taters in each planter :( Who knows maybe I'll prosper from beginner's luck ;)

Wow! You have all been working hard on that vegie garden. Everything looks so healthy......must taste good :) Pretty poppies and is that a hosta close by? Those zuccinis look yummy, lovely tomatoes cucumber and lettuce. You must have used some good fertilizer! The potatoes look good. I havn't tried that method of growing them. What are the plants in the third last pic.?
Keep up the good work and enjoy the 'fruits' of your labour :) When does the growing season finish there?
