Then it was off to the Green Houses and plants were purchased. All said and done, $500 investment into making the garden and planting the seeds.
|The shady yard. The garden is behind the 5 trees, a little fruit garden is in front of the 5 trees.|
One of the above 5 trees in a row ~ I got annoyed one afternoon at how much sunshine they were taking from my struggling raspberry row. I got out the old dull axe and 100 swings later, I was sweaty and happy ~ the tree is gone! Now I will wait for the manly man to use the chainsaw on the others. I didn't think I should cut my leg off just yet. I love my garden and all, but I need my legs as they are!
|Bye bye sun sucking tree!|
The sod was pushed up and I thought ~ hum, throw in a pumpkin and a squash and see if the girls notice... I will be putting some black plastic on the rest of the pile to hopefully burn off the grass and it will be a nice compost dirt pile.
We are eating lots of beans and peas and carrots and onions and potatoes. I don't like to buy any veggies in the store this time of year when I know I can eat from the garden. So far we've ate about $50 worth from the garden, so I only have another $450 to pay off the garden! Next year will be easier and better. Can't wait to fill the freezer with all this good organic, nutrient filled veggies for winter eating. Saves on the pocket book as well as feeding the best quality food to our bodies.
