A garden update

We keep making upgrades to the garden each year. Our new addition is the potato box. It is a stand alone box that has just potatoes and we kept adding layers so it is about 4 feet high now. The intent is to remove each layer when its time, and we won’t have to dig up potatoes. It will be interesting to see how it works.

We also have a sunflower corner. They are growing and blooming already. They are Mammoth sunflowers but did not reach their full potential. I think I planted them inside too early.

So far things in the garden are growing and looking good!


Went to Asheville for an extended weekend.  We love that area…mountains, breweries, chocolate.  There were several forest fires in the area which brought in a lot of smoke. We decided to cut our trip short.  On the way home through TN, we ran into even more smoke from fires.  There are 20 forest fires burning in the SE due to drought conditions. Out hearts go out to all those impacted.
