Our garden is growing and looking so awesome. :D Here are some pictures. Captions are above the pictures. You can click to enlarge.
Our square foot garden . . .
And it covered in stuff that keeps it from freezing if the temps drop suddenly.
Our strawberries . . .
Our little peach tree.
The remains of our fall garden . . .
Some of our cabbages are trying to make heads, but most of it bolted when it got hot, so we're basically letting everything from last fall go to seed.
Also I totally forgot to mention we got a tractor! We got a really good deal on it and it's already paying for itself. Without it we never would have gotten the horse barn fixed! It's also going to save us a ton of money in brush hogging the pasture. Paying someone to brush hog for us costs about $300 plus and we need to do it several times a year to keep the weeds from taking over. So it will pay for itself quickly. My husband loves it! Looks how cute it is pulling our tiny little Gorilla cart. :D
And we used it to build a new garden bed!! We used the bucket to get some old horse manure from the barn on the lease land. Once it cooks down we will be planting pumpkins here. :D
My pictures of the gooseberries, blueberries and blackberries didn't turn out. I'll have to try to get more pictures later when the sun isn't so bright. :)
