Just in case you might be interested in seeing the progress of my garden I have posted some pictures below. I am so pleased with how well everything is growing. I am also thankful for the advice and help of a dear Christian woman. She has such a green thumb and has taken me under her wing this gardening season. She helped us get horse manure which has really helped everything grow and of course is organic. She also told me that I could cut down on weeds by putting down newspaper in between the rows and then cover it with straw. I am all about cutting down on weeds. Also, this will help add nitrogen and humus matter to the soil for next year.
If you would like to be reminded of what my garden looked like 2 months ago when it was planted then check out the post here.
Not pictured are our butternut squash, spaghetti squash, peppers, and corn. I didn’t think you would want to see any more vegetables. 🙂 I do feel so blessed that we are able to grow our own organic produce. There are no pesticides or chemicals of any kind on this garden. While it does take time to have a garden, the health and financial benefits are worth every drop of sweat.
