August Garden: Video Tour

Come on over and take a tour of my August Garden

Are you as forgetful as I? The last time we were at our cottage, I left my camera there. We were planning a trip to the shore, and of course I wanted the camera, but the day we planned to drive out and pick it up, well, I was suffering from food poisoning of all things.

Thankfully, I was feeling much better when we left for our vacation and we had a fantastic few days, sans camera. (I did take a few pics with my phone).

The garden grew a ton while we were away but I still don’t have my camera to take a few photos. Soooo, I decided to make my first ever video. Don’t get too excited, since I had to use my phone, and I’m such an amateur. Still, I hope you enjoy it!

By the way, the plant that my weary brain was struggling to remember is horseradish.

    I am in West Michigan and it has been very cool here too. My zucchini and cucumbers are sad. And it seems like it is going to take forever for my tomatoes to turn red :(

    Wow, your garden is so beautiful. I didn’t do any gardening this year and your video is really making me miss it more than I already do! Those purple peppers are gorgeous, I have never seen them before. When you said you were going to the “shore” I had to laugh because I knew you had to be on the east coast. I am from the east coast and now live in California, and if you refer to the beach as the shore, people look at you like you have 3 heads.

      Yep, east coast! I had my granddaughter in my lap in a kayak at a lake a few years ago, and when I said that we should go closer in to the shore, she got all excited – thought we were going to the ocean!

    Any method to your madness when it comes to location, Susan? (I assume the ‘three sisters’ is specifically planned) Did you put sweet potatoes in that location for a productivity reason or is that just the way it worked out?

    • Susan Vinskofski says

      No real method, Micah. I try to move things around and put them in different spots each year if possible. I also consider the height of plants so that they don’t shade other plants that are sun lovers, etc. I’d like to do more companion planting (like the 3 sisters) but it doesn’t always work out. I’m pretty laid back with this type of thing.

    Oh man. That was beautiful. I’m trying not to get discouraged about my garden, which basically only produced some kale and turnips. :p Now I’m working myself up to try for a fall garden and see if I can keep it from the squirrels. Thanks for your encouraging video. :)

    You have a beautiful place. I’m so envious. I live in Oklahoma and am trying to get started with growing foods, canning and freezing, but I’ve got a lot of learning to do. We have had a draught for the last three years and my garden has really suffered. This year I planted everything in containers by my back porch. They did fairly well. I had tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, jalopino (however you spell it. HA!) peppers, bell peppers, herbs and I even got an avocado to grow. We have so many insects and animals out here in the woods that I have to share with them as well, so I didn’t do as well as I should have. I did start a little late also.

      Sounds like you are doing a great job despite the obstacles, Pam. Animals are a big problem for us, too, even though we live in town. Keep persevering!
