This was taken a month ago. Oh what a difference on growth.
My smaller back garden. This is the one I have to fight the crows out of.
More recent pickings.
Some of our early pickings.
This is the back view of our larger garden. View attachment 11
This is the side view of our larger garden.
We have not tried asparagus here yet. We just bought this place a year ago and this is our experimental garden. We are seeing what all works best here and will plan better in years to come. So far, we see that we did not leave enough space between plants. That is so hard to do when you are planting tiny seeds, or transplanting little plants, but now we have rows that we can't even walk down because the plants are so big. I never imagined we would have such amazing results! I tell you the truth...I prayed over the garden daily..prayed for sick plants and watched them take off. I put in a lot of love, and a little miracle grow. We were blessed with really good soil too. We are currently tilling up more areas so we can space things out more next year. We are looking at fruit trees, but I think we might overwhelm ourselves doing too much at once. You are right, I could open a stand. We give away all we can. It killed me to throw about 20 cantaloupe in the compost pile just because they all ripened at once and they don't keep well. Thank you for all of your kind words. Just remember, plants know when you love them and they respond to us talking to them.
Do you know of any local soup/meal kitchens or churches that do food for the homeless and poor? If you find yourself with an overabundance in the future, some places like these and WEAVE, crisis centers, etc, will take some or all of it off your hands to do good work and spread the love and miracle you grew to others who will love to have it.
