Good for winter when you've got the blues

Here, left to right, are carrots, broccoli, cabbage, and tomatoes.  Scant walking space...

Here's a different view, with corn at the back, and carrots at the fore.

Cosmos comes up volunteer, and we leave it to brighten up the garden.

Here's the garden getting watered, with a ladder trellis for our grapevine.

Here are the grapes ripening.

We let our 4 hens loose for a while, till one got killed by a predator. They did a lot of rooting in the garden, which was big enough at that point to withstand it, but I think it's not a good idea in the long run, as they would kill raspberries and other things.  Pictured are zucchini, raspberries, and potato plants.

We also let some poppies self propagate in a flower area. But they have to be mostly pulled later, as they produce a lot of seeds...


Squash flower with bee.

Sunflowers are also a tolerated volunteer in some places.

Whenever we get Easter lillies or other lillies, we plant them and they usually come back with flowers the next year.

These are Provider green beans. We get more beans than we can freeze every year with these.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of our garden. It's organic. So there's sometimes critters. Mostly the produce keeps ahead of them...
