It Is 2005 So It Is Time To Turn The Soil And Plant
The garden took off early this year as evidenced by the grapes in full swing
2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar.
It was designated:
The Year of the Volunteer by the UK government
The World Year of Physics
The International Year of the Eucharist in Catholicism.
The Year of Cork City as European Capital of Culture.
The Year of the Veteran in Canada.
The Liles household is busy preparing for the summer garden. Hands and knees forming the beds for the little babies.
Join us to watch them grow throught the summer.
Seeing and smelling the different vegetables make life interesting!

Preparations & Underway
The preparations are a lengthy process as we have to get rid of last years leftovers, search for weeds, roto-till the ground and add whatever soil amendments we deem proper.
You can almost hear them grow
Grapes are looking super
String beans will grow several inches a day at their peak
Blueberry nets are up... Bye bye birdies
The Garden Grows...
It looks lik a forest of steel but in a few weeks the support disappear and it looks like a tomato forest!

Growing Like Mad
During the growing season there are days when one can go to the yard and listed to the vegetables grow. String beans grow six inches a day and squash can go crazy in a day.

A forest of cages are ready
Squash soon to be ready
