Our garden failed last year, in Nick’s words. But I beg to differ. We did end up with about twenty butternut squash and…..well, ok, it failed other than that (although check out the handful of delicious butternut squash recipes I came up with on the right side of my blog, who knew butternut squash was so versatile?!). Nick is pretty sure he disrupted the whole nitrogen balance when he bought an electirc tiller and tilled the crap out of the soil before planting. This year he did a little less tilling and a lot more research online. But this garden still seems to be giving him a lot of stress (he’s constantly going to the kitchen to open the blinds and look outside to make sure the plants are “ok” and growing).
|The view from our kitchen. A few weeks ago it actually got so cold we had to cover the plants to protect them from the frost!|
|It’s ready!! The only issue? We found a huge bees nest in this area last night…..|
|In addition to these we are growing broccoli and bell peppers. Nick is taking this very seriously.|
|Nick has added a fence to block the rabbits from eating our bounty. I hope it works! It also blocks the garden in the back.|
