An Organic Backyard Garden in New Jersey

We have butternut squash growing up over the green beans... Bugs are welcome
we aim for a harmonious balance between bugs who eat our food, and the bugs
who eat them.

This little cucumber is getting a second wind...

Butterflies are encouraged to come and go at whim

with lots of their favorite plants surrounding the vegetable garden

Heirloom tomatoes
a golden squash

grown from organic seed right here by us...

Zucchini and swiss chard too...
We know the balance is working when so many different creatures
choose to make their home right here..
Can you see the Robin in the plum tree?

Long overdue update

We've been too busy tending to this to blog.... good thing we love zucchini
this guy will not stay away...

We are canning these now....

Enjoying these..

Checking out the cool bugs who drop in

Did I mention hoping the rain stops long enough to weed?

I hope you enjoyed these pictures of our corner of the Garden State.
Hopefully it will not be so long before I can blog again.
