(How) Is your garden growing?

Here where I live and work in Maine, I’m part of a small group that is responsible for 9000 square feet of organic garden in Augusta and 625 square feet in Bangor. That’s a lot to take care of, and that’s why at home I’m happy with about 30. In Maine, the warmth comes late, and here’s what I’ve raked out and planted just today:

Maine Garden Started in May 2017

Tomatoes, kale, radishes, green beans, cukes and sunflowers all fit nicely in that wee space. I think it’ll be a happy space.

    I’m in Ohio on a 110x100ft 1940 subdivision plot in the city. I have two peach, two plum trees, one apple and one cherry tree, four grape vines (totally loaded this year), blackberries, red raspberries, rhubarb, asparagus, horseradish, mint, mustard greens, two types of garlic, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers, and cucumbers. I should put in some kale too. And I still have more grass to cut than I want. I should pull up some more grass and put in some snap peas (but most don’t make it to the house because I munch on them while tooling around out there or hang on the hammock between the grape vines. Life is real good when I let God be God and do my best to see people as He does.
