2015 Garden Expansion
My 2014 garden was such a personal success that I needed more. I had to have more space. By 2015, I was older and wiser enough (with an aching back enough) to ask for help. My good pal (and father of my children) agreed to team up with me to make room for a 2015 garden expansion.
Campbell just could not understand why I preferred to garden close to the house when I had such a
perfect spot to garden at the bottom of the hill. I welcomed him to plant in the lower garden if he wanted to. So, he purchased this tiller from Home Depot to make himself a real garden spot. Also, we got Miracle Gro Garden Soil for Flowers and Veggies on sale and used it to supplement the soil in my new garden tier.
Campbell and Hannah planted rows of pole beans and okra.
Maybe I still have a sentimental attachment to my tiny gardens. Lettuce was a perfect crop for that area. Enough sun, not too much sun.
This was how my upper gardens looked by June 7.
Lower Garden – June 7, 2015 coming along nicely.
Grapes from a vine Madison bought me several years ago.
And in the summer of 2015 – my sister outdid me again with another bonus kid.
Amazing adventure. Love the pictures of you hard working people, and especially of the beautiful produce. Looking forward to pictures of this year’s garden and resulting harvest.
Thanks Aunt Faye! I’m looking forward to the harvest too!
How utterly delightful! From the pictures, anyone would think you were farming acres! Good luck with the 2016 gardens.
