This is the bottom half of the garden. We just seeded it with buckwheat and cowpeas. This will be tilled under before it goes to seed to put green manure in the ground. We will do this two more times this summer. Hopefully this plus a truck load of manure will help get our soil fertile. After the garden is done growing our vegetables we will put in a crop of fava beans and also till them under to put green manure into the soil.

My first bouquet! How exciting! One bouquet wasn't enough to sell at Farmer's though. I will be going to farmer's next Saturday. My bouquet has several kinds of Zinnia's, two types of cosmos, blue and rose colored larkspurs, statice and one flower I can't spell that I didn't expect to grow, I thought is was a type of Salvia, but is very pretty and I'm glad I grew it.
