Liz Cultivates: End-of-Year Retrospective 2022

My little garden did pretty well this year. Here’s a look:

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I am looking forward to next year. I’m planning on more squashes (multiple kinds!) and strawberries and maybe some pumpkins. And peppers, of course! I also would like to start an herb annex part of the yard.

Learning how to grow things and keep plants alive — which in turn provide sustenance to me — has been a journey. The first year, I grew one lonely banana pepper plant, with some small peppers. Now, I’m up to spaghetti squash! And even though I only got a few squashes out of the plant before a vine borer got it, I feel so good about what I have been able to accomplish in only a few short years. (Short years that have felt like long years.)

Next year will bring even more fun and learning opportunities. I’m looking forward to it!
