To continue my series of catching up, I want to share my garden photos with you. I know that everyone is thinking about Christmas because I am too! You're checking your list, decorating, buying and making gifts and a post about gardening is the last thing on anyone's mind! Maybe an off topic distraction will be good to think of preparing for a garden after the new year.
This is my first garden, a keyhole garden, you can read more about it from this post. I really enjoyed tending to the garden and I learned a lot! My sister in Texas also had a garden this year and we enjoyed figuring it out together. There was lots of browsing the internet and sharing information and cheering each other!
Here's a photo of my irrigation system using a sprinkler hose.
I learned about bad bugs.
I learned about good bugs.
I learned about good bacteria and bad bacteria and bacteria spores and hookworms on tomato plants and much more. I kept it organic, using soap spray and milk spray and picking off those darn hookworms. There's still so much more to learn! Below are a few photos of the fruits of my labor.
I'm looking forward to having a garden next year! Do you garden?
