This is our second summer here at the ranch and the second summer we’ve had a garden. This year we’ve expanded to include peppers
some of the saddest peas I’ve ever seen
and some berries.
Our garden isn’t nearly big enough to sustain us, or make any sort of dent in our food budget, but that’s okay. It’s been a real learning curve and we’ve gotten a lot of enjoyment just out planting the seeds, tending our “crops” and watching this little miracle in the backyard unfold. One day I hope we can make a real dent in our food budget and I’d even like to can some of the produce we grow. For now I’ll settle for a nice helping of green beans or some fresh corn on the cob.
How about you? Did you plant a garden this year? What did you plant? Are your peas faring better than ours?
