I have been busy outdoors this spring and summer trying to get the ole' garden in growing order.
We've had some real success with the veggies this year! So far we have enjoyed some amazing yellow squash, delicious zucchini (I never knew there were so many yummy zucc recipes), dang good collards and a couple mini strawberries. I also discovered that I do not care for swiss chard-- no matter which way I cook it-- it's just bitter-- the chickens seem to love it though! =)
We are still awaiting our tomatoes, eggplant, corn, and pumpkins. The pumpkin is a "big max" variety-- that is supposed to be 50 to 75 lbs on average! It's a nice sunny yellow right now. It's amazing the daily size progress it makes.
I also have two very good garden keepers-- Woodrow and Sydney. Woodrow is a bit of a basil eater though.
Soon to come-- goats! I have the pen/corral all set up-- now all I need are the goats!
