Garden 2019

This was our 10th year as urban gardeners.  

 

 

 

 

Successes

  • Our herbs did well again. We had to give some away.

  • We participated in our first farmer's market.

  • Gardeners Jerry and James watered plants and harvested independently of Gardener Shicole!

 

Struggles

  • Bell peppers were mostly eaten by bugs.

  • Apple tree suffered from disease.

  • New job as a school administrator took some time away from our garden.

New Experiences

  • We planted cauliflower for the first time and two of the four plants produced cauliflower!

  • We planted our first apple tree!

From Our Boys

 

  • Jerry - I liked our garden space. We had a lot of space for the food we grew. I liked learning new things about plants.

 

  • James - I tasted different things. I liked that I got to taste everything I helped grow.
