Every Summer Morning {Garden Tour}

Hello friends! I feel like I’m finally getting into posting again, and actually wanting to post and feeling inspired to post, which as you might know is a wonderful feeling! Ahem, today I’m going to share something that I’ve been wanting to share for a while now: My Garden.

Well it’s not technically my garden, but I’m the one who mainly takes care of it, you know weeding, watering, harvesting, and all of the other things that come with having a garden so… To be technical, I actually take care of two gardens, of sorts. My family’s and my neighbors.

Good morning! It’s about 7:45, and still quite chilly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The first step is to fill up the watering can, I typically just use this old blue one.

Then I haul the watering can to wherever the water needs to go, either across the street to our neighbor’s house or to the back of our lot to our garden.

I’m not completely sure what the big pole thing is about, but I think it has something to do with creation, or the story of the bible or something? Our neighbor likes to make unique things. ๐Ÿ˜‰ He’s an older gentleman, and can’t take care of his garden very much anymore, but still enjoys having one, when he’s home. Thus it has become my job. We also mow his lawn for him, and shovel his snow in the winter. Oh, and btw. he doesn’t have a playground in his backyard, that is the village park. (the park is extremely old though. XD)

Our neighbor also has an apple tree, we often make apple pies with the apples in the fall.

He also enjoys planting various trees, I think he has an apple tree, a few decorative trees and maybe a pear tree? I’m not really sure.

After I’m finished watering, I usually move on to harvesting. Most of the things we planted back in the spring were: Tomato’s, Bell Peppers, herbs, squash (ick) and of course broccoli.

I often feel so grateful when I bring in a bunch of tomatoes almost every summer morning. It helps me feel grateful that I have breakfastย andย often a bucket full of tomatoes and/or peppers, or broccoli or squash or whatever.
My point is that most people in America have whatever they need whenever they need it, and in abundance. We don’t have to haul water, to drink or work for hours to buy just a little food, even if we don’t feel rich, deep down inside us we know that we are. ๐Ÿ™‚

After things have been harvested, it’s time to wash all the produce. Often times when we have so many tomatoes, I’ll give them to the neighbors, or visitors later in the day. ๐Ÿ˜€

After I’ve finished all of the work it’s already about 8:30 (depending on how much work there was to do) or later, it’s time for the day to begin, and I’ve likely already taken my sweatshirt off.

I’m going to have to start hurrying with my garden chores, because school starts Monday. XD

I hope you guys enjoyed this, and are having a wonderful weekend!

    This was neat, Hannah! I love your garden. I love in a project, so I can’t have as big a garden as I’d like, but I’m really pleased when I can give back, even if it’s as pathetic as green onions. XD
