Would you like to take a walk around my garden?
First things first, I must play with my dogs. They will accept nothing less.
Where’s Milo, you ask? He is the male of our fur family, so he typically runs off to mark any spot he can. He’s the man. All four pounds of him. But I will post a non-farm photo of him. He’s a little embarrassed by this one.
Anyways, back to the garden tour.
To the left of you, you will see our sweet potatoes.
Over 150 plants, these delicious and nutritious Ipomoea batatas keep us fed throughout the winter.
Our favorite is the making of sweet potato pancake batter, which is frozen in individual baggies and thawed the night before use. Scrumptious!
A family tradition has begun!
To the right is our popcorn. Movie nights will be all the better. And my husband and I couldn’t be any different with our popcorn preferences. I prefer plain and white; he prefers butter, salt and butter.
Watermelon is a new addition to our garden this year. It is growing like crazy, and takes about two weeks for us to go through one.
Fortunately, gardens are a great giving opportunity and many neighbors love the home grown food.
While our garden includes much more than this, I should probably get to it. The harvest is ready.
And my pups want to play, too.
