Our Garden 2013




Our garden this year is finally in full swing. We lost our first round of plants due to a freak frost that wiped everything out. So we waited a few weeks to make sure the freak storm was over and planted everything all over again. Since then it has been a little slow going and not just for us but our neighbors too. However I think with the latest heat wave last month and then into a cool down with rain everything is finally on track.




These ginormous zucchini we picked after the nasty humid heat wave we had. Obviously the zucchini loved it because look how big they are!




The girls love to help in the garden. While I was out mowing they collected the cut grass and put it around the plants. A little trick our neighbors taught us last season...cuts down on weeding and adds extra goodness to the soil as it brakes down.



We also have apples this season on all three trees! Last year we had no apples due to the long frost. Looks like this year I will be canning and filling the winter pantry with homemade applesauce and pie filling!

Whoa, those zucchinis are HUGE! We're growing squash and zucchini this year, too, and they're big, but nothing like that. Your garden looks fab!

wow - that is very impressive. My husband is our gardener. We live on a tiny patch of land (less than 1/4 acre in a suburban area) - yet he grows corn - go figure!
