But I did learn a lot. Next year we are going to move the garden to an area with more natural shade & filtered sunlight. We will get the drip system to its maximum potential. (My dad put in a great drip system, but I did not have things planted in the whole garden patch, so it wasn't working correctly for what we needed). This way the garden will get watered and my hubby won't be upset that I spend more time caring for plants than for him (okay, so I talked to the pumpkins a bit, no big deal!). I will choose plants that grow well together and that are good for this area (cactus? haha). I need plant that take good care of themselves, like my fruit trees. And hopefully we won't be doing as much work on the house, this time next year.
In the meantime, enjoy the pictures of some of the good things that happened in our yard!
Check out those sunflowers! (the rest of the dead garden is to the right)
We had so many tomatoes from these plants. Although the ones on the left did not bear much fruit. But I got these 5 plants for free (1 was a gift from the Whites) and took great care of them!
Fruits of my labor: Yummy tomato sauce for pasta!
The insides of my cute little pumpkin
I was very excited that I grew this pumpkin all the way from a seed into a full plant! This was the first thing we picked from our garden
