My Man is a Super-Gardener !

 Just look at this garden with fruit trees on the side. My husband planted all this since this past March. We had snow and deep freeze until early March, our new veggie garden is now situated and planted on ground that was previously used as parking space and hard as pavement. My husband also prepared the ground and soil for our fruit trees shown here ( right of garden). They were also planted on ground previously hard as pavement.
 This view shows the garden from my sheep pen. Look at what my amazing husband has done with this piece of land ! ( Our house is in the upper right of the picture.)
 You can see my sheep grazing in their pasture on the other side of our new veggie garden, and further away you can see our woods & forest.
 Radishes ready to pluck from the soil.
 Squashes and pumpkins are flourishing and threatening to take over the veggie garden !
 It is hard to believe that only last year this piece of our new land was barren except for weeds and hard-packed soil. My husband has already turned the barren wasteland into an abundant vegetable garden ! Fruit trees are already providing fruit, vegetables enough for us , our family, and to sell at the local market....
 ...pumpkins, squash and corn ready to take over the garden plot,
 harvests covering our counter-tops , filling our fridge and begging to be eaten and preserved.
 Guess what, my husband even decided to can his hard -worked -for produce. He started canning !
Took this picture this morning of my husband standing in his garden. Look at the sweet corn , it's taller than him and the corn will soon be ready to pick.You can see our pasture and woods in the distance. Yes indeed, my man is a super-gardener !

That is an amazing transformation of your land from last year to this fruitful garden! I am happy for you. I know it was a big transition.

WOW! Super gardener for sure! What a job it must have been getting the land ready to plant, but well worth the effort.

I can tell you are loving your new home! Looking forward to seeing more of it and your studio, your sheep, geese, etc.

Have a great weekend to you both ~ FlowerLady

Kathy, that garden is fabulous. We have a few community gardens around here and they aren't as lush as yours. That's fantastic. He certainly has more than a green thumb... and I'm sure it was a lot of hard work!And I also checked out your other sites. Great pics! Love the Frizzled rooster!

He really is a master gardener. That is quite a transformation that he did of a flat piece of soil.

Kudos to your super-gardener who has done a super job in transforming the land. I was wondering if you could share how he cultivated it to make it so fertile.

Henny Penny said...

Oh, he really is a super-gardener!! That is an amazing garden. It all looks so green and healthy. And then to do the canning! My husband would not even know where to look for a jar. You have a beautiful place!

Wow, and double wow! Just beautiful. I can't imagine all the work, but look at the rewards! Your new place looks beautiful and prospering.

Amazing and beautiful garden, Kathy! All your veggies in this post and the previous one look gorgeous. The yellow squash we can get at the grocery store looks terrible already. Kudos to your husband on all his hard work. And to you, too, for all those darling little sheep you craft! Blessings, Bess

Hi Kathy, it has been a while since I visited and I love what super gardener and you have done. Love the house, love the gardens. You are so happy and that does my heart good. I will try to keep up, don't know if the posts are not showing up on my reading list or just not seeing them when they do. I love the horseshoe things. She is very talented. Hugs to you and your wonderful family. LJ

That IS amazing! He's a superman! Very impressive. How did he prepare the soil? I would have expected to get to that level at Year three!
