I was looking through my pictures and came upon the pictures from last year. I can’t believe how different my garden is now. Who would have guessed one year could bring so much change. Between the chickens and adding the west garden, I’m not sure which I am more pleased with. Well, that’s not true, I love my chickens! Anyhow, I just wanted to share a few pictures with you. I sure would love to see how your gardens are coming along. Am I the only crazy gardener?
This picture was taken almost a year ago on March 4, 2012. I had just added my newest boxes to the garden but the chickens hadn’t yet arrived.
Above are the latest pictures of the east (top) and west (bottom) garden. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank my dad and mom (she was our cheerleader) for helping me get the potatoes, onions and peas planted when they came to visit last weekend. Dad even helped get a truckload of mulch. Nothing like putting your family to work. The squirrels have been digging in the garden lately and so I used the raised bed protectors I had previously made to try to stop them. I only had two covers so the top left bed which is also planted with potatoes is uncovered, but so far so good. The other beds have not yet been planted. I hope to get more things planted this weekend.
I just had to add these last two pictures. The chics were giving me the stink eye the other day, because they thought they deserved more greens from the garden then I had given them. Then lastly, my baby Kahlo, on her first christmas in 2009.
