The Summer Garden Is Finally Planted (04/16/2008)

This is part of the garden facing north.  The shed on the left is the compost bin.  We use straw to cover the garden which keeps weeds out and saves a ton of water.  There are many different types of tomatoes planted here along with squash, peppers, melons, watermelons, zucchini, peanuts, hot peppers and grapes!

Last Of The Winter Garden Goes Away (04/10/2008)

Onions, beets and cabbage which we will either eat or give away (hopefully) or compost to make way for the 2008 Summer Garden.  The straw bail in the pictures is getting wet so any seeds in the straw will sprout and make it easier to spread without hay popping up all over. Straw is an agricultural byproduct, the dry stalk of a cereal plant, after the nutrient grain or seed has been removed. Straw makes up about half of the yield of a cereal crop such as barley, oats, rice, rye or wheat. In times gone by, it was regarded as a useful by-product of the harvest, but with the advent of the combine harvester, straw has become more of a burden, almost a nuisance to farmers.

This is NOT our back yard (.... yet!)
