Garden Growing

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. :)

  1. That looks so nice! I wish I would have my own yard with some flowers, herbs and vegetables growing in it. And of course some berry bushes and appel, cherry and blum trees :) Then I would need a cold cellar too.

  4. Awesome! Everytime I try to grow plants they die. I mean just flat out die. Once my grandma gave us this potted plant she had for a while and on the first day it went from petals to dried grass.
