Banana Garden?

How does our garden grow?… not very well as it turned out last summer. But much better now.

We had little luck last summer with our veggie garden, though the rabbits would argue this point since they remained well nourished throughout the growing season.  We are happy for them.
So for this reason, I decided to do some gardening of a different nature. The kind that would last all year long too… and I did it! Though this garden serves to nourish only the imagination. Just as important as fresh vegetables to eat, I am quite certain.
So as with all gardens, one must start with fertile soil. This one is all ready for seeding into nice neat rows. Then it is watered generously.

We harvested onions, beets, strawberries, carrots and peas all at the the same time! It was a miraculous harvest.

And at Thanksgiving, we feasted!

I am gifting the garden to sweet Ava, my great niece… I hope she has many years for happy gardening with it. And I finally did yesterday… and I think she likes it.

Down by the sea again: I can’t help myself… I love the mermaids! And they have some new friends.

I can’t wait to give these to some special friends… so please keep things quiet!! Check out the shiny seahores and fishes… more on that later. The Fish, you see, may become shark food down the road. Ouch for the fish.
