Thank you Mother Nature...

Another night of glorious rain!!!  Thank you Mother Nature for watering my garden!
No new photos today... hasn't change much!

OK, if you live in an area that gets rain regularly... you probably think that I'm crazy making that comment!  But... we live in the high desert Wyoming plains where 6" of moisture is about all we normally get... for the year!

Actually, it's kind of amazing what we can get to grow here... in the desert!

We are so totally blessed to have irrigation water!

If you visit Wyoming in the months of about October thru early April, you will be greeted by various shades of beige... beige beige beige... Being a transplanted New Englander... this color gets old fast!!!!

But all that changes with our Spring rains and our irrigation water!  The desert blossoms... and once beige fields turn a luscious green color!  The contrast is very beautiful actually!  Beige & Green!

Here's a photo of one of my favorite places! This is my "backyard" playground!  I hike & kayak here.

Gardening 2015!

Greetings from beautiful Wyoming!!!!

I got a lot of planting done on Memorial Day!

Into my Square Foot Garden:
40 Tomato, mostly Roma... but a few Cherokee too.
36 Pepper Plants, Jalapeño, Habanero, Bell
8 Kale
4 Eggplant

Recently, I've also planted:
20 squares of Royal Burgundy Beans

Because root vegetables do so well here, we decided to dig up the ground, amend it a bit with compost, and plant a bunch of Potatoes!

Next up... Radishes & Greens!
