Kent is a bit frustrated with the garden this year so far and those were his words when he saw that our organic broccoli and cabbage were eaten by…we don't know what. Whatever it was left no footprints. Keep in mind we have our garden inside two fences. He also planted some melons out behind the fence and we're guessing the deer ate those. Well, it's nice that we're providing some nice organic produce for the wildlife this summer. At least our tomatoes and peppers are looking good!
On a more positive note, look at this pretty picture my friend, Sonia, sent me of the salad bouquet from their plot at our local community garden downtown: (At that link you can read about why they decided to buy a plot there instead of growing in their own backyard.)
Let us know how your gardens are going so far this summer?
Have you seen these posts?
- The quest for nutrient-dense food: high brix farming: When I first read this article I was absolutely amazed at what I learned. I found it even more wild that all this DID interest me so much. A city girl eagerly learning about refractometers and soil quality? Trust me, it just might pull you in, too.
- The importance of healthy soil with Jay McCaman: “I learned a lot by talking with people who didn’t go to a University, but mostly I learned from my Dad, I watched what he did. When I was a kid, my Dad’s tomatoes tasted better than everyone else’s, and when he did the same thing in our hay fields, the cows gave more milk.”
- Do you eat fruits and vegetables in season only?
