Garden Tours - Part 6

A few weeks ago, we visited our adopted grandparents. Grammie has a raised bed garden at their country home. She grew some kale, kohlrabi, beets, cabbage, purple hull peas, peppers, blackberries, cucumbers, and heirloom tomatoes. Grammie is also growing a fall garden this year with lettuce and other greens.

Grammie also cans many vegetables and meats. She canned pickles, green beans, tomato sauce, beets, okra, salsa, apples, pears, venison, chicken and other vegetables and jams. Did you see the antique square canning jar in the lower right corner?

Grammie's rural garden is surrounded by beautiful mountains. She also has an electric fence around the garden to keep out the unwanted deer! She has used an irrigation system this year for watering.

Thank you, Grammie, for letting me tour your garden!
