Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow??

Can’t believe I can remember that nursery rhyme!!  I wanted to share with you the spectacular bloom my flowers and garden have provided this year.  Hope you enjoy the photo shoot.

DSCN5215I had something blooming all summer and now the hibiscus, cardinal flower, hyacinth bean and trumpet vine are starting to open but it’s too wet to get new pictures.  I’ve had a very good year.  We’ve canned almost 100 quarts of green beans and hubby finally pulled up the last of the beans yesterday and fed them to the cows.  He planted turnips in their place and the corn should be ready in a few days.  In the spring the new rhubarb set got a great start.  The asparagus just wouldn’t quit bearing and the strawberries got a great start too.  We got raspberries and blueberries before the birds got all of them.  God has been good to us this year!!  Fall is upon us and soon winter will make us very glad and grateful for all of the bounty He helped us produce and these pictures will get me through the winter months waiting for spring to come again.  Our migrating hummingbirds have returned and I’m patiently waiting for the hummingbird moth to return.  Our fall calves have started arriving and the spring calves are growing fast!!  Life is good on the farm!

  3. The yield is so out of hand at the moment. Any suggestions for all the squash in our garden!! I’m so tickled with my flowers this year and looks like the hard work in the spring paid off!! I’ll have to work hard in the fall covering and protecting everything, especially the roses.
