I love this time of year. It’s the time of year when the we finally start to enjoy the fruits and vegetables of all of our back breaking labor. All spring we worked preparing the garden soil, starting seedlings in the greenhouse, applying compost and organic mulch to our newly planted babies. Then on cold nights we would cover them with frost cloths to protect them from our fluctuating spring temperatures. We had to do lots of extra watering this season due to our above average temperatures and below average rainfall. Unfortunately I think this will be a continuing trend. We are planning now for a rainwater collection system for next summer to help with our watering needs. If anyone knows of any grants out there please forward the information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personally there is nothing more rewarding to me then to see the children from our family friendly residency enjoying our gardens fresh cucumbers at lunch time.
