A boom year for the garden
So far this is turning out to be a boom year for the garden. Everything is growing like crazy. In part this might be because we amended the soil by adding compost and manure before we planted while we were tilling the soil. I think it may be either the weather or the amount of pollen that was in the air this year as well. Even the fruit trees and blueberry bushes are putting out way more than they did last year and I don't really know why. Last year the peach tree had maybe twenty to thirty peaches, most of which were eaten by deer, this year there is at least a hundred maybe a hundred and fifty. The girls and I picked cucumbers and green beans for dinner tonight and they ate every bite.
