Today I went to my friend Donna’s house for a fall garden class. I snapped a few shots of her amazing backyard garden – she is THE BOMB. It should be noted that she put her beds to sleep for the summer and 90% of what is growing now are simply volunteers that popped up on their own. Most if it is a MASSIVE butternut squash plant…I’m so jelly. ;P
Donna is a wealth of information and was doing the whole backyard homesteading thing before it was hipster…aka cool. You can find her at Sharing Life’s Abundance…tell her Tiff sent you!
I am not sure I want to post my pictures now…I’m feeling a bit…inadequate. O well here we go!
I’m pretty stinking happy with my watermelon…BOOM BABY!
Now last, but not least, my tomatoes in buckets. I trimmed these up on recommendation and to experiment. I am getting a lot of new growth on 2 of them. But the Golden Jubilee may not recover.
After today’s class I know that my focus for the summer is to build my compost and focus on good healthy, living, soil for fall planting.
