Goodbye, Spring Garden

On Monday, September 19th, I said goodbye to my very first garden, my spring/summer 2016 garden. It was hard to say goodbye, but it needed to be done so I could plant my fall crops. 

 

The beginning of my spring garden. πŸ’š
 
As I harvested the last of the veggies, I thanked God for all of His blessings. I didn’t quite know how my first garden would turn out, especially since I was going at this organically, but I was pleasantly pleased. 

 

Some of my harvests! πŸ’š
 
I had a few plants that were eaten by a bunny when they were around 4″ tall, I had some plants that died, and I had some plants that were eaten alive by bugs, but the plants that made it were very hardy and productive. 

 

Some more of my harvests! πŸ’š
 
I definitely learned a lot this year, that’s for dang sure!

I kept a journal, so I’ll be able to use it for my next spring/summer garden. I wrote down when each type of bug arrived, when different plant illnesses arrived (e.g., powdery mildew), and which organic treatments worked and didn’t work. 

My last harvest! πŸ’š

My children also learned a lot about gardening this year, and they will continue to learn by helping me with the fall garden. 

 

Homeschooling is fun on the homestead! πŸ’š
 
All in all, I would say this was a very successful year and I owe it all to the good Lord above. Without Him, I wouldn’t have been able to do it. πŸ’š
