Everyone thinks that the farm lady must have an amazing garden! Right now, my garden looks like this:
Sad. Pitiful. I can’t see past this and imagine that it will ever look different.
So I am posting some pictures of our garden in better days, just to inspire myself.
Lest you think I am responsible for this, I’m not.
It’s Papa the Farmer who likes to garden.
I like pulling all last year’s dead plants out at the beginning of the season to give myself a fresh start.
I like looking through last year’s seeds and this year’s catalogues, planning what to plant.
I like walking in the garden and sampling the snap peas when they are ripe.
And I love a table filled with fresh garden-goodness!
But the weeding, watering, installing fences, fighting off animals and all the other work that goes into maintaining a garden?
Not so crazy about that part.
So for now, I’ll just post pictures and dream about the really great garden we are going to have this year!
