Before and after pics of our 2012 garden. Tonnes of growth this year. We planted 1 watermelon, 2 zucchini (green and yellow), 3 cherry tomatoes (2 red, 1 yellow), one tomato called "Old German" (yellow), 4 red peppers, 1 cayenne pepper, 6 romain lettuce, 1 asparagus and 3 eggplant. We also put in 4 sunflowers. Next year we don't need so many lettuce plants. I have lettuce coming out of my ears. Also only one zucchini plant. 1 less cherry tomato too. I would put the watermelon plant somewhere else. All in all a good year for growing a garden. Lots of sun... not much rain though.
This was a block of the month using a special ruler called the Lazy Angle Ruler. The fabric are all batiks. I started this project 9 months ago.
I am going to try blogging more and see how it goes. We just completed a flower/ plant garden last week. This is the before and after. We used 4 yards of composted cow manure and 3 yards of triple mix. I expect that the gardens will sink. The plan was done at Mori Gardens. We did the labour.
I also worked on the back gardens. Adding plants and wood chips free from a local park.
Here is the new addition: a red delicious apple tree!
