As it turns out, my gardening leaves much to be desired. I put in a maximum of effort for a minimum of produce; never-the-less, I think I will try again next year before I give up completely and become a cut flower farmer.
This weekend I started to clean out the garden in preparation for winter and I harvested the last of the produce.
Before you think I pulled them up too early, I should mention that I chose a stubby variety for my six inch deep beds.
I planted these in May...it took all summer for them to grow, probably a waste of gardening space considering my garden is so small.
They went straight from the garden into a pot roast with a slight detour into the sink to wash off the dirt. Fresh roasted carrots! Yum!
And that about wraps it up for the gardening posts this year!
This fall has been busy...from the first day of school, up until the present moment, I have barely had a chance to catch my breath. We have been busy with soccer, senior events, SATs, ACTs, college essays, common apps and college visits.
In the last three weeks, we've been to Mount Holyoke College twice, once for a visit and once for an interview and tour. Here are some photos from our trips.
Check out the library!
Common Room in one of the dorms.
I believe this is the outside of the dorm.
The best thing about Mount Holyoke are the friends that go there.
We also visited the chapel on campus, but I took so many pictures there that I will include them in a separate post.
