HOME GROWN GARDENS -- 2009

GARDEN#1
SCARECROW GARDEN
This scarecrow garden is the first of three home gardens ( all photos taken in June 09) mentioned in this post -- the gardens are the scarecrow garden, the beans and tomatoes garden and lastly the vegetable variety garden. They are being grown in Berea, KY, Madison County. They represent just a few of hundreds of home gardens around the Berea area.

The above scarecrow was homemade by the owner of the garden. Looks like it works on keeping the birds out as the veggies are doing terrific.


Get a load of these beautiful cabbages! They grow under the watchful eye of the scarecrow.


Weeds piled high to be used in the compost pile in the scarecrow garden.


This is the backyard garden where the scarecrow at the top lives. An older couple grows this garden.

GARDEN #2
BEANS AND TOMATO GARDEN
Here is a garden that has grown exponentially with all the rain that we have had in the area. Here the gardener is out tying up climbing beans. The garden vegetables are primarily beans and tomatoes which are canned for winter use.


GARDEN #3
VEGETABLE VARIETY GARDEN
For 15 years this garden has produced all types of vegetables. It is started in March. It is grown by a single man that works full time.

Recycling an old way to grow gardens --many gardeners are now using heirloom seeds and also growing home vegetable gardens organically.
