Last night I was looking for something on the blog and came across this picture.
That was 2012 and our first Texas garden. The landscape timbers were for building the raised bed for the asparagus. We had PVC pipe over rebar with plastic landscaping fencing to keep the deer out that year. The next year we extended the garden to 100 x 100 and had the high fence put up.
Do I miss the big garden? Yes. I miss the variety and quantities I was able to grow there.
Different kinds of pumpkins and squash, artichokes. I’ll never have the room here to grow those huge vines that take up so much room. Would I trade having a big garden space for being so close to Addie? Nope! Never.
We’re getting older. In 2012 when we built the big garden area, we were almost ten years younger than we are now. The photos of the big garden bring back fun memories but not nearly as fun as counting down the days til I can pick Addie up at school and she’ll spend the weekend with us.
There’s a time and a season for everything.
