Photo-roll: Garden 2014

The first plants – before the seeds took off!

After a whopping 60 cm of snow and ice pellets over one night I’m tired, cold, and grumpy. What better way to forget the howling winds and shaking windows than a little reflection on the beautiful things ? Like my garden, of course.

This past summer we downsized to a 6 x 12 foot garden plot at our community garden. I can’t tell you how wonderful working in the community garden has been – we’ve met neighbors, learned new techniques, and surprised ourselves with delicious meals. It’s a fantastic place and I look forward to talking evening strolls there soon!

The damage following Tropical Storm Arthur – we got lucky!

Our very first cucumber – I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Midway through the season and we were enjoying salad greens, onions, beet greens, and basil

So many cucumbers – I filled our cupboard with pickles!

Delicious salad greens and a forest of carrots
