“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.” – Alfred Austin – Little Tassie Prepper

Apart from the large one I have produced, I am also getting lots of smaller and tasty zucchini. In addition, lettuce is growing well, and it looks like my potatoes are getting close to harvest time. My corn are growing and I am amazed at the height of the plants. Each one is showing the signs of an excellent harvest of the grain.

On the topic of garden news, I haven’t paid very much attention to the compost, having other issues which require my attention. Sure, I turn it, yet only do so once a week. Due to this, the compost has been slowly cooking and turning into some high quality soil.  I should pay more attention to this, yet I have so many other things to do each day, and if I can get it to work with little input, yet the expenditure of time… that is OK by me.

I am still harvesting some great food from my garden. In my 10 Feb post I displayed a picture of the largest Zucchini that I had grown… if you were impressed by that, check this out.

My tomato harvest has been less than desirable… yet it looking like it could turn out to be good.  So far I have had one tomato, yet dozens more are ripening and should be ready soon.
