Garden Till Ya Drop








I really have no idea how big the garden is this year. Or what all the counts are on varieties of things. I just now it is BIG. And working in the garden sure does wear Blaine out! ;) That's right we were carrying him around with us while we worked and he totally zonked. What you see here is basically the size of a field. And that isnt' all because we've got our peas, fava beans, sweet corn, broccoli, califlower, asparagus, and sweet corn all in a separate places, a different field and a plot in the middle of the backyard (last year's pumpkin patch). If you look close you can see that we still have 4 hothouses on the giant pumpkin plants and the moveable chicken pen is on the far right of the picture. The chickens are getting big, and only have about 3 more weeks to live!
