My garden has done well this year. I have been excited to see how much I am improving on my knowledge of growing things. Here are a few pics...
Here is lettuce, carrots, broccoli, spinach, onions. We ate and ate...and harvested over 100 carrots. The chicken got into the broccoli and it grew slowly and never really recovered. They are in a pen now and CAN'T get out...the little boogers.
All the kids planted a raised bed garden this year with what they wanted..some more reluctantly than others...no names will be mentioned my darling eldest....Here is my son's produce. He wanted cucumbers so he could make pickles. I didn't think he liked them and when I asked him about it he said he didn't. HUH??? Sweet boy. He just wanted to make pickles for others...HMMM..there is hope.
This child REALLY wanted sunflowers...and they are beautiful and huge. I was trying to picture the tiny bees working on this big helianthus annus...I could see the pollen collected in their sacs..I had not seen them in real life before. . So let's play find the bee. 1,000,000 points if you find it. (By the way, hlianthus annus is the scientific name for sunflower...helios is Greek for sun, anthemon for flower, and annus for year. Interesting, you say!! Yes, we do homeschool. No, my kids don't know this. No judging.)
The rest of the Spring
so much more...later.
