A Tour of Our Summer Garden

A quick tour video of our summer garden

This is the type of garden I grew up with in southern Ontario, we could usually provide most of our vegetable requirements, and even put away a fair amount for the winter.  So continuing that trend, this is our summer garden for 2013.

I must say, this was planted before I really started learning anything about permaculture, self sufficiency, preparedness, raised beds, etc.  This is what came natural to us and, of course, we didn’t spray anything.  The only fertilization is compost and some cow manure.

Our ground is good for growning nightshades: tomatoes, eggplant, sweet peppers, hot peppers, etc.  Zucchini, squash, beans, and root vegetables grow well for us too.

A surprise this year was the size of the horseradish plants – the leaves were waist high!

Hopefully you enjoy – the garden will improve next year, I guarantee…
