Gardening 2013

Took some pictures of the garden. There is still a lot of work to be done but hopefully the weeding will get done sometime in the next couple of weeks. I hope to have some more pictures later on in the summer to see how the progress goes.

  1. Your garden is looking wonderful. So green and lush compared to mine which is settling itself down for winter. If you need help with the weeds I can send a small goat and lamb over. They will eat anything…sigh. Keep up the good work.

  2. My goodness Karen, that is a lot of garden for you and John to take care of. But the flowers are worth it and I am sure all of the veggies will be, also. You need to plant some squash and a pumpkin for Halloween and for the kids to have fun with. Ann
