This one’s for my Dad!

Harvest 2010
In February my dad and I took a trip together, which was the first time we have spent any length of time together since I was a kid. We live in different states.  We talked a bit about gardening, and I told him about my garden that I was trying to keep as organic as possible without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. He told me, “one day you’ll learn how to garden.”
So, how am I doing so far? Oh and the season isn’t over yet! I still have plenty more harvesting to do. I still have the rest of my summer crops and a fall crop coming! But as you can see from 2009 to 2010 my harvest has grown. Next year I plan to add even more variety to my garden.
I am pretty sure this proves that my gardening methods and skills work just fine! ;) Sometimes it is hard to believe your kids can grow up and do things all on their own and in their own way, but we do just fine.
Happy Gardening!


  1. Shawn Ann, those collages are so beautiful and perfectly captures your harvests. I especially love the obvious progress you've made between 2009 and 2010, and you're not even done with 2010 yet! I would say that you're doing more than just fine with your garden.
