We have a lot of blackberries around the farm but I thought it would be nice to have one without thorns! We also have raspberries around here but thought it would be nice to also have one in our back yard.
|This garden is 48x38 feet and sets a little ways behind |
the house. I noticed in this picture the posts look kinda
funny but I wanted to fence in the garden with what
was on hand, they are a little on the tall side. :)
I wore gloves the whole time and I still ended up with blisters and a few cuts on both hands, but not as bad as I thought it would be. I cant wait for hubby to come home in a few weeks and see the new garden, hopefully the plants with be starting to come through by then! In this garden I have put in 25 sweet potatoes (today), tomorrow I plan on putting in beets, turnips, green beans, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes and hopefully a few more plants if I have the room. I plan on having a lot of things to can this year, fingers crossed! Then I am taking off Saturday from farm work (except feeding) :) my nephew is getting married down by the river and after the reception is having a party, so it will be an all afternoon and evening thing. I think though I will only stay for a little while at the party Mom will not feel like staying very long and I don't drink anyway so that's OK. I should have some pretty pictures to blog about though! :) I think this is long enough so bye for now!
