I take no credit for the wonderful vegetables growing in our front yard. Glenn and Oliver have planted nearly every seed, watered every plant and pulled every weed. We moved into our house about a year ago. The place where our garden now grows used to be fill dirt, plastic, rocks and ugly pompous grass. Glenn wasted no time moving out rocks and moving in sheep and horse manure. By June of last year, Glenn had a small vegetable garden growing. This year we have already eaten peas, artichoke, beets and chard from the garden.
This first shot is of the garden in June 2008.
Glenn put in an irrigation system this year which saves him several hours a week. This is our garden in March 2009.
On a side note, I found this lizard living in our artichoke plant eating ants. Oh, how I love reptiles!
