My goal this year is to just get something to grow to help improve the soil.. that's it. If I can build up the soil and get that plot productive it will produce quite a bit of food.. it is about 700 square feet of dirt I think .. so there is no limit to what I can do with that once the soil gets healthy.
The sunflowers are hanging in there, about 1/2 are still alive but looking pretty pale. Like I said before, this winter just has kept going and going with the rain and the cold. We put some plant food on them so hopefully they will perk up and start growing.
A real bright spot is the wildflowers that came back again in the front yard! There are lupines, poppies, gallardias and other things I don't know the name of that are making it very cheery. Here are the pictures of the garden and one of a run-down shack on a beautiful piece of land outside the town of Valley Springs.
