The photo that I have posted is a recent (as in 20 minutes ago) picture of our vegetable garden. Everything is lush and green and we’ve been partaking of salad greens, onions, chives, all the herbs and snap peas already. I am most anxious for the tomatoes, because frankly they are the best. We usually have tomatoes into November , but last year I got anxious and pulled the plants out too early, in my desire to clean stuff up. People in our neighborhood, whom we don’t know, stop and ask to purchase tomatoes, but we always have so many we give them away. I love the agricultural life and the new friends we harvest.
We opted for raised beds, because we had the stuff to make them. I hadn’t really thought about it before, but it seems to work for us. We are also big recyclers so when we had to take out the old brick wall we put the brick in as paths between the raised beds, I love it for taking care of the weeding problem. Now here is the question of the day….why don’t aphids eat chickweed and then the slugs eat the aphids….doesn’t that sound more like the circle of life?
Sorry to bore you with garden stuff, but it’s what we do.
