our organic garden


I'm all for keeping it real on this blog, and I'm about to do just that. Our garden is abundant this year in cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes and sweet peas. And depending on how I take the pictures, you might just think our garden is well tended. And it sort of is. It gets watered. It was planted. You know, the basics.

But it turns out there is a lot going on at this little hobby farm. And weeding just never seems to be at the top of the list. Which means that our garden is also abundant in weeds. As in, they are out of control.

Tonight we will have 40 relatives here to visit our little farm. The farming relatives. The ones who all have huge gardens and green thumbs and years and years of expertise. And we're going to have to show them our weeds. I have this feeling some of these relatives might just grab a pair of gloves and start pulling. Which would be awesome and embarrassing at the same time.

So as long as the farming relatives get to see the true state of our garden, I thought I'd share it with you too.





So there it is. Our dirty laundry. Or in this case, our weedy garden.

Weeds would most definitely not be at the top of our list either! At least you get yummy veggies out of it :)

Hey, at least your vegetables are growing. That's more than I can say for the weedy garden I had years ago, before I totally gave up!

This is one of my favoritest posts ever! Jeremiah recently tilled under our nicely fenced in weed patch and we threw some flower seeds out there.

It's good to know that I'm not the only one with weedy garden!
