It is the first time we've had a garden in a few years and already, we are having a bountiful harvest.I spent a few days marking out plots, turning over the soil and mulching everything to keep the weeds down. With the help of abundant rain this spring and plenty of sunshine, the garden is doing well. We've even managed to defeat the hordes of slugs, caterpillars and one naughty deer.
seven layer salad to healthy zucchini bread, zucchini , black bean and rice skillet, fruit pizza and plain old cheesy cauliflower and broccoli.
Jack pulled a few pounds of wild honey out of our house (along with a free hive of bees) and we've been reaping wild raspberries, blackberries, plums and are eagerly awaiting grapes, pecans, apples and of course, more honey.
We are already giving thanks for the earth's abundance at our humble farmstead.
Happy Early Thanksgiving!
