Mom, you wanted to see pictures of the garden, so here you go!
A gooseberry! It's like a hairy grape that tastes like a pear.
The garden is probably an acre in area!
We actually GROW compost....this is our comfrey farm. :P
Quick tour of the veggies: corn and sprouting broccoli...
...potatoes on the left, peas and beans on the right...
...and, oh, gosh, what's all in here...I don't even know the name of some of this stuff: sea kale, onions, beets, carrots, lettuce, etc.
So THIS is why people garden! After the winter months of pelting, icy rain, and digging in hard ground, and the tackling of jungles - now this feeling of accomplishment, celebration, and the juice of warm berries in one's mouth!
