Garden Expansion Project
It was fun to revisit this pre-pandemic post to see what has changed and what has stayed the same.
Three years later, we are still working on this project. Want to see what's happened since then? Check out our Instagram account HERE to see the progress Highlight of our Green House project.
So...it's now May 10th, and I'm a little behind in my recap of last month. These past few weeks included a trip across the country (Florida), one across borders (Mexico), and one where we spent a glorious weekend with beloved friends within the borders of the Joshua Tree National Park. I am so grateful for these opportunities to create memories with loved ones! (More vacation photos at the end.)
Easter Sunday with family in FL.
As for the garden, we've also been BUSY. We are currently in the process of doubling our garden space, and I have dreams about including a greenhouse made of recycled materials. It's a process that we keep chipping away at to reveal a place where years of memories will be made.
Building our newest bed. This will be our biggest yet. Oh, the possibilities!
In our existing vegetable garden our biggest successes have been our ever producing artichoke plants and our most recent harvest of red potatoes.
The artichoke plant has been amazing at continuously producing new buds. We've eaten and given away a few, and it keeps making more! My goal is to now leave the existing globes (if I can show some restraint) and allow them to flower. I think they would make a beautiful addition to the garden!
The thistle that just keeps on giving!
So much goodness in that colander.
On the garden agenda for next month is to continue working on our garden expansion project. I would love to get a portion of it done so that we can plant corn, beans, cucumbers, zucchini, etc. A lot of work ahead, but such a labor of love!
