How does your garden grow?

by - August 07, 2015

Oh that garden.   So, here's the thing:  it didn't rain in Saskatchewan in July.  At all.  Well, at least not over our acreage, anyway.
We were certain our crops would be toast.  It was so dry that our 12 ft deep dugout was empty by the end of the month.  Yuck.
And then at the end of the month, it finally rained and rained and rained. For about an hour.  And all of a sudden, everything popped up and went nuts!
1/4 of the garden is Lucia's...she picked all the seeds she wanted to plant (which are all rainbow..rainbow carrots, purple beans, purple potatoes...)  That kid.







I would just love to see how awesome it would have been had it rained in July.
We have potatoes, corn, beets, onions, asparagus, peas, strawberries and tomatoes.  I feel like I'm forgetting something.  I didn't participate in the planting, I'm more of the "cook awesome things with the food we harvest" person in the house.
I'll be putting together a post for later this month of the different things I make with the produce from our garden.
Now tell me, how does your garden grow?
As a side note, I would just like to note this so I remember next year to plant Morning Glories again. Man, they are doing sooo well in my front flower beds!

  6. Lucia has quite the green or maybe rainbow thumb! My youngest always liked planting a garden. Can't wait to read your follow-up post about the yummy food you make with the harvest.

  7. Pretty garden. That picture looks like Lucia is "explaining" everything to Willis! I'm with Christy - I want to try whatever you cook. Love your front beds too.

  8. I am more and more convinced all the time that there is not one thing you cannot do. Your life impresses me and reminds me of all I miss out on doing/trying. Thanks for being a inspiration to me.

  9. It's so funny how it is different all over the country - we had the rainiest July ever! Your garden sounds awesome - homegrown produce is so much better.

  16. OH, me oh my, there is plenty I can't do. Like hem pants equally, or finish a project with the same gusto I've started it with. The list goes on, heck, that's practically its own post. Thanks for being so kind :)
