How has the garden grown?

The girls have worked hard on our garden this year.
Last night, we enjoyed a quiche, that had carrots, broccoli, zucchini and onion that we grew, along with home grown eggs!  It was wonderful!  The color, texture and taste were really amazing!

In the background, you see the Sunflower fort (w/some toys
in it), in the foreground, you see the broccoli, and carrots.

On the far left, you can see that our zucchini have just taken off!

We are harvesting the first of our beans tomorrow for dinner!

Anna says we have exactly 200 ears of corn for us to enjoy in another week or so!

Serenity loves to smell everything in the garden!

Our squash bed, where we have ornamental gourds, pumpkins, sweet pumpkins, and various squash.
This is one of the 2 beds we started by letting our chickens eat everything down and do some initial fertilizing.

  1. the garden looks GREAT!!! It is a blessing to be able to grow and eat your own food. The added eggs just make things perfect. We have been enjoying meals with our eggs, raw milk, fresh home made butter and cream.
