My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

7/19/18 throwback Thursday

Where I cut back brush the other day. Going to put some steps here to make it easier to get up the hill.

Bachelor buttons

Nope not a straight line but admiring my progress. 

The view from up here. 

My 6' iron bar I use to start post holes. Who needs a gym when you're a farmer girl?

#throwbackthursday From 2009 cherry tomatoes in pots on the patio. That's what started me selling at our Globe-Miami Farmers Market

July 2012 some little ducklings. Pretty sure those came from Karen Donaldson. I still have some of their decendents

Had lunch and went to see mom. She was even more disconnected today than usual, wandered off after a few minutes saying she was going to go find her mother. (Granny died about 1985) so did chores at mom's and came to my house. It was 102 degrees with 33% humidity. I know that's nothing compared to some places but I was way too hot. And of course the water line to the cooler had sprung a leak. 

Worked on the pen door and actually got it put together. 

Recycled some old hinges. The door isn't quite square and neither is the opening it goes into sooo #justonemorething  I'll look at it tomorrow if I have time and see if I can make it work. 

In the meantime a big hunderstorm started rolling in. Looking west as I left my place. 

And looking east / northeast

And a Sleeping Beauty sunset. My daughter came to visit so a little dinner then off to bed.
