This was my first attempt at an enclosed garden in my backyard…and it turned out to be an achievement that I am quite proud of!
The garden is at rest right now, but I learned a lot from this adventure, and I’m really looking forward to next season.
Take a look at what the rest of the world has been up to. More amazing achievements can be found here!
Oh yum, I envy your achievement. A green thumb is something I lack!
Thanks – it’s a lot of trial and error, but somehow it all works!
I am totally impressed! Corn in an enclosed garden!
🙂 Yep – I didn’t even think about it growing too tall for the enclosure when I planted it. I just knew that I wanted corn, so I thought I would give it a try. It got a little crunched at the end of it’s growing time, but for the most part, it seemed to work okay, and it looked awesome in the garden too!
Wow! That’s awesome!
Wow! Great job 😄
Thank you Tina! 🙂 It was a lot of fun.
Wow! That’s great! From seeds to harvesting to preserving aka you really rock and such an achievement. Very well done; congrats!
Thank you so much!
Wow! Gardening is such a joy. 🙂
Yes it is. It can also be discouraging at times, like when the bugs come and try to eat everything that I plant, but most of the time…I do find a lot of peace and joy when I am in my garden.
The other day, I felt so sad. I tried growing some celery and they did. I kept waiting and waiting for the right time to harvest – “just a few more days and the stems would be big enough,” I said to myself. Then, one chilly morning, I went to the garden to pick the celery only to find them sad and frozen.
Yeah, even with these mishaps, gardening is good. We should have a virtual gardening support group. 🙂
Oh wow! Imelda! I am so IMPRESSED, you grew celery!
I think I need some tips from you, so, YES!! I am all for the gardening support group! I am so sorry to hear about your celery though, I had a similar experience with carrots. I planted them too close together, and everything I read said to thin them out…and I didn’t…and they didn’t grow very big either. Next time, as much as it “pains” me, I know I MUST thin them out, and not feel bad about it!
And yet, we keep on trying 🙂
That’s a beautiful looking ear of corn!
Well thank you! It was a very good tasting ear of corn as well! 🙂
From the looks of it, you should be proud. Praise the Lord for His bountiful blessings upon the work of your hands! \(^_^)/
Thank you Rene – I agree, I almost changed my mind about using these photos as an example of an achievement, because really…it wasn’t me that did any of it! But I guess, I had to plant it in order for it to grow! 🙂 God is GOOD!

That looks like a very crowded and colourful garden you have there! The fruits of your labour. You must be one happy little gardener. Hope you grow even more plants next year 🙂
Thank you Mabel – I’m looking forward to next year too!
