These photos are also from our 2018 garden. Journaling reads:
We have had vegetable gardens ever since we married, and tried several planting layouts. Most years, we planted the same way our parents did long rows. In 2018, we had one of the prettiest, most productive gardens wed ever had. Jerry had been retired for two years and had gotten into learning more about new ways of gardening. I designed this garden with shorter rows, running in both directions, laid out in a grid pattern with only a couple of long rows in the middle. Jerry also read that wheat straw is good for keeping weeds down and moisture in. So, we tried it. Its a little pricey, but well worth the cost and at the end of the season, it can be plowed in to amend the soil. In the end, this garden produced 1211 pounds of food and I was able to preserve 447 pints of it.
Our little garden helpers, Ruby and Sophie, are also in the bottom photo here. Also pictured are just a few of the veggies we picked, and several view of the garden. This is a very simple page. The red and the green strips are washi tape. PPs are from P13 Farm Sweet Farm. Thanks so much for stopping by :)
