This year there have been many obstacles to making my garden the retreat I would like for it to be. There have been time constraints, financial constraints, and the abundance of rain constraint.
My husband helped me with my garden work on Friday. I finally got one-half of the garden weeded, and he helped me move tons of mulch between the beds.
Here are the results.
Our compost bin is in the center of the garden, and you can see we made the paths and beds weed free to the compost bin.
Our plants are starting to take shape and getting ready to bear. They have been weeded, fertilized, and mulched with straw.
I planted Blue Lake bush beans this year for canning. I also wanted to try a different variety for fun, so I planted some French green beans. The interesting difference between the two varieties so far is… the Blue Lake bush bean seeds are white and have white blooms on them. The French bean seeds are dark purple and have a beautiful purple colored bloom.
