some photo of the farm garden

We decided that the garden need to be redone . That the way it was the last 2 years wasn't working . Our soil is pure clay and every summer we go into drought condition, the weeds and the bugs just ruled. So i have been reading about how the french have all there garden raised in boxes . So we have raised beds now  4 large ones and 4 smaller ones . The soil in them is getting better  every year . they are easier to weed  and pick off the bugs . We are going to try to do some winter gardening in the long skinny ones this winter . I am very pleased so far as how it is growing .
We have been working on redoing the veggie garden . Our sun and heat is so hot out here that we provide shade for the pepper plants
This is our  orchard area . We have heirloom apple trees and blueberry bushes in here . I like the wildness of it . It has sunflowers, black eyed susan's, queen anne lace all growing in it . It is very pretty right now
Queen Anne lace
Black Eyed Susan's
Butterfly bush
This is the sunflower pasture . It is a pasture that we are working on for the goat durning the winter . IT has clover, sunflowers and alot of other good stuff for the soil. When the flowers are gone by we will re till it and plant orchard Grass
Our Tomatoes will be ready soon.
