And a special thanks to...

Thank you! Oh! Thank you! I can hardly believe this!  This bucket of cucumbers is so heavy, I just can't wait to make pickles!  Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such a bountiful garden.  I have so many thank-yous, where do I start?  First I would like to thank Legs, Rhodie, and Bandit for providing such wonderful fertilizer....and I would like to thank elbow grease and sweat for helping me and my hubby make such a wonderful plot.  I would like to thank the rain for visiting us every three days, you made such a difference this year.  And last but not least, a very special thanks goes out to our pollinators.  We couldn't have done it without you!

Remember the before?

 The jungle that is our garden now...


 The bees have found one of the chicken watering fonts and have deemed this their water source.  Have you ever tried to change a bee's mind about where they get their water?  Let's just say talking sense into a bee doesn't here we have resigned to allowing the bees to use this watering font and have provided a separate one for the chickens!  We owe them that much!


  1. Great pics Melissa!

  2. Wow! Your garden does look good! Our weeds look good. lol. We have a bird bath that has been renamed the bee waterer. No birds use it. The bees love it. heheheh
