It's In!

This year's spring/summer garden is in. If it weren't for OG's and EJ's help and hard work, it would have taken me at least two additional days of working by myself. As you can see in the photos below, we still have plenty of room to continue adding additional raised beds. We plan to add at least one more this coming fall and again next spring.In this raised bed, located at the back of the garden, we've planted zucchini, yellow squash and a few cantaloupe hills.
In these raised beds, near the front and middle sections, we've planted 18 tomato plants, 6 bell pepper plants, green beans, cucumbers, lettuce and spinach.
We still need to extend the bean trellis and we will plant flowers in the cinder blocks. The flowers will bring in honey bees, which are good for pollination, repel a few pests AND add some bright spots of color. We are very excited and trusting the Lord for a good harvest.


  1. It looks very nice, I can not wait to see your garden this time next month!! Being where we live we are not able to start a garden for at least another 2 months :(. I will being praying for you and your harvest this year.

  2. Hi Jamie,

    Prayers for an abundant harvest will be greatly appreciated, thank you. We are especially praying for the squash ... the last two years we've had trouble with all those varieties which is very unusual since in years past it's produced better than anything else.

  3. Ya'll did a GREAT job on the garden. I can't wait to see what great recipes you are going to share once the harvest starts coming in.
