In preparation for our road trip we camped out in the yard one fine August night.
Rusty didn't seem too thrilled with his accommodations to start with...
...but he soon got the hang of it and made himself comfortable.
He woke up all bright eyed and bushy tailed...
... unlike some we could mention!
Here's some pictures of the garden from last summer.
This is some of our harvest of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, beets and squash.
A strange beasty Ananda found on the mint. Any ideas?
This is me watering the apricot tree and trying to be all artistic!
Pumpkins... too good for carving, perfect for Thai curry, with the peppers above, and pies!
These, cute purple flowers belong to our sweet potatoes, which gave us a pretty good harvest. Need to amend the soil next year with sand to help them grow bigger. I grew some slips from a sweet potato I bought at Whole Foods so will be repeating that this year. Soon!
The tomatoes and cucumbers were most abundant through the whole year, all of which I grew from seed, with the help of a cold frame.
The pumpkins just appeared naturally out of our compost so was a nice bonus!
Bell peppers were plants I bought, never had much luck growing them but will try again!
They gave nice big bell peppers as you can see
... and Rusty wasn't sure whether to eat them or not.
Hopefully this forth coming summer will be just as fruitful!
