Garden June 2001

Here are some pictures of Rooster Hill Farm complete with my then-comments, before it was Rooster Hill Farm!

pic

The garden in its infancy, 2001. The mounds are zukes, cukes, winter squash and gourds. Beyond that are tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, carrots, beans, peas, onions are across the back (on your right) and corn is on the other side.

Other side of the garden. Horseradish and asparagus to your left, corn in front of you. The white PVC on the right is framing for blueberry bushes. There are 71 bushes. House can be barely seen through the trees. Chicken coop is small structure (there are 2 –only one is in use). Small orchard is ahead of you — cherry, pear and peach trees. The birds usually get them before we do. ;-)

Pix of the garden 6/26. Starting to take off. We are feeding the rabbit population of Tioga County, I think.

What can I say? I like gnomes. This one is cooking tofurkey. ;-)

Here is a view of the house. Can you see my flower boxes? The deck is a great place to watch the sunset.

Here are Penny and Martha.

Here is a view of the pond, and sleeping Buddy. 6/8/2001.

I could not get the chicks to stand still for a group shot until a hawk flew over. From the left:
Snowy, George, Zorro is behind George, Xena, Martha is behind Xena, and Penny. 6/8/2001.

6/8/2001 Here is a wall I am building to retain a flower bed. I am going to plant a clematis there to climb the lattice and maybe some other climbers.

pic

The flowers were given to me, and they are sapiglosis, blue eyes, candy tufts, convulvulus, moonflowers, nicotiana, and then the clematis, buddleia and pansies I planted.

Zukes front and center.

We are experimenting with different tomato structures. I think the smaller plants may be cherry tomotoes — the dogs knocked over my seed trays and I am not sure what got planted. ;-)

pic

Peppers, eggplants, peppers and more tomato experiments.

pic

This is what rabbits can do. These rows used to be 2 varieties of beans, plus a row of peas and a row of carrots. They even dug the carrots up out of the ground.

pic

Corn — also a rabbit favorite. And horseradish in the front.

pic

Horseradish.

pic

My first try at growing eggplant. Flea beetles are the worst!

pic

My first birdhouse gourd plant. There are blossoms coming!
