Another Garden Season Down

Another Garden Season Down

What a great experience this years gardening season has been.  Most of the tomatoes were voleenters from last year and well we still only got one zucchini.  Even if it was 17 inches long lol We tried our hand at melons this year and the field mice got to them before they were big enough for us to enjoy.  Although I did pick a softball size watermelon and share it with the family before they carried it away.

We got 2 hot peppers and alot of cucumbers.  The really liked the heat this summer.

Garden 2011

So we have finally put in the garden. We had several volunteer tomato plants come up and aren't sure what kind they are so that will be interesting to watch develop and grow. We planted some peppers, lettuce, melons and pumpkins. I believe there may be a squash in there too. Ill post pics tomorrow I couldn't find the camera tonight to do it.We love the garden and I can't wait to share our stories with you again. Love, GPG

Circle of Life


I am way behind in posting gardening pictures and information.    I have been hit hard in the last six months with the passing of dear friends, family members, and colleagues.    With each passing my therapeutic ritual was my garden.    As tears streamed down my face . . . I processed my sadness, depression, and anger by working in my garden.  I played in the dirt.  I smelled the flowers.  I watched the birds, bees, and butterflies dance in the garden.  I harvested fruit, vegetables, and herbs.  I witness the circle of life in my garden from season to season.  Feeling the powerful energy of how interconnected we all are.    The circle of life is short my friends.  Soak in the memories, share your feelings, and take time to be alone with yourself to ponder life. I took the following pictures throughout the 2010 garden season.     I will be ringing in the New Year tonight with family and friends and planning my new garden for 2011 tomorrow.  May God Bless you and Happy New Year!
