I thought I would look around on my computer and show you how the garden has changed in four years. This was they first year We started gardening and writing a blog. We tried to grow everything we could think of and I had so much produce. I was giving so much a way. We learned so much though.
Our Second Garden.
My garden in these pictures were not my favorite. My Mom's death as I look back had taken a bigger toll on me than I had thought. I didn't have the energy to do much with it and I know I didn't can a single thing. I think I must have just picked the tomatoes and gave them to the chickens.
Our Third Garden.
It wasn't much better this year either. Just look at all of the weeds. I had lots more going on and lots more on my plate and the garden sort of got pushed back on the to do list. Even my sunflowers didn't do worth a darn.
The heat was intense and it never let up 2011 It was really hard to decide to keep gardening.
2012 garden, and my favorite so far:
This garden is more spread out. There is lots of room to drive the tractor. There is lots of color from the flowers. We have spent lots more time out here this year. You can tell how much we have been out here this year.
This is earlier this summer when things were just coming up. I just thought that since it has been almost 4 years since I started this blog, I would share how my garden has changed. Not only the garden, but me and my husband both. It really had turned into a labor of love. Just like life, there are bumps in the road along the way, and lots of things to be learned. But life is a journey and part of that journey is finding out what works and what doesn't work, and if you keep your eyes open and keep looking, there is treasure everywhere.
