February Garden

The garden is now looking pretty sad, after drying out with six more weeks of no rain, a howling wind one day that sucked the moisture right out of the leaves, and then a frost, but it was gorgeous in February. For once, I got a few pictures of it near the peak. Mr. Intellectual grew this beautiful sunflower.03-IMG_2945

The pumpkins from two gardens grew toward each other. Just after they met, though, we decided we needed a path between them to the gate at the far end, so we redirected the vines to keep it open in the middle.17-IMG_2987

For a little while, it felt almost like a tsunami spilling out of the garden! The pumpkins and zucchini were trying their best to take over the world. The frost has nearly finished them off by now, though.


We left the onions lay out to dry for a little while. We have enough for a few months!


Mr. Imagination frequently checked on the pumpkins, looking for large ones. I scratched his initials into a few of them.

    Love the garden! I’m hoping to do more this year again with no tiny babies to care for! 🙂 Makes my mouth water for the taste of fresh vegetables.
