I loved my Aunt Janes front yard vegetable garden last year and she was back at it this year making it bigger and better than ever! Jane has kindly agreed to let me share these photos with you all again. Her garden is so inspiring and creative. It’s no surprise that she has cleaned up at the fair again this year. I don’t think any of my veggies would be worthy of the fair– I feel that there are some secrets that need to be shared here – Is there a magic vegetable wax? Or a magical skunk deterrent? ha! In Jane’s front yard: (Click on any photo to view as a slide show)
Jane planted 300 onion sets, garlic, yellow and green beans, snow peas, reg. peas, beets, carrots, kale, red cabbage, and 6 types of peppers and about 6 varieties of tomatoes. Her plans for the future include trying a cold frame for winter gardening out of old windows. Even with Jane being the pro that she is, is still experimenting. Isn’t that great? In the Back Yard: This setting seems so pleasing and relaxing to me. Bye-bye stress.
The Result: 1st Place! WOW! A job well done again Jane.
Let me know when you write the handbook on how to get first prize at the fair. I want to read it! Have you ever seen such shiny delicious vegetables? I think I can see my own reflection in this photograph. What one looks the most beautiful? If you could be any vegetable what would you be? And wouldn’t you want to be cared for in Jane’s garden? I would- she always took good care of me when I was a kid! Can’t wait to see what you do next year Jane and thanks for sharing your successes with us. Perhaps I will get a chance to come and see it in person next year. Happy Gardening! Diane Jane’s Garden Last Year
