Early Summer Garden 2016

As I pass a well manicured garden - I will admit, I get garden envy.  I always imagine I will have a weed free, neatly manicured, magazine perfect garden...I never do.  It's not that I don't give it the "good ole' college try."  

Weeds are hard to keep up with!  Especially, if you try to do things more organically.  We add manure and compost to our garden each year and that is full of weed seeds.   

Al has taken an interest in gardening, yay!  Last year he planted some things in my raised beds.  After a lack luster yield, he decided to dig out the beds and add some "new" dirt.  We actually bought a trailer load from a specialty dirt place.  It has coconut shells and other good things in it.  

Here are a few pictures.  I didn't take a wide angle view of the back garden, as I have been busy doing estate sales and it is weedy.  When I finish this post, it's outside I go, to work on it.  Maybe, by mid-July, I will post a picture of it, maybe...










Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Hi Jacky! Thanks for sharing photos of your garden! I now have garden envy! I'm so glad Al has taken an interest! It's always better when you have a helper in the garden! I would love to get my hands in some dirt like that! Blessings from Bama!

Your garden looks great! I keep wanting to add more raised beds to our garden. Right now we just have strawberries in one. I read blog posts where these people show off their manicured garden and lawns too! How the heck do they do it?
