How Does Your Garden Grow?
I took this photo while on our vacation to Vancouver earlier in the month and treated it in Photoshop with the watercolour filter. I really like the result.
Now that the chicks are in their coop and appear to be settling in well, I've finally had time to turn my attention to my garden.
Last year my garden flourished, for the most part, so naturally I thought it would do as well, if not better this year given that I know more now than I did then.
We've had a very wet and cold spring and summer, so far, and my garden is - in a word - abysmal. To give you an idea, I planted 10 rows of carrots and counted a mere 10 sprouts.
Now, while I appreciate the symmetry of that, it's demoralizing to say the least.
In fact, other than my potatoes and radishes, very little has come up in my garden other than a vigorous harvest of weeds.
So, the past few days were spent weeding and reseeding my garden. I figure if it's too late in the season, I won't be any further behind than I already am.
It's tough being a farmer, what can I say?
