Farm Planting

This past weekend we went down to my Momma's to hang out for the holiday and get some farm work in. Luckily for us, Hubby's dad did most of the work, but we still had to till over the plot again. No biggy though, Hubby tilled and I planted behind him. We got just over 100 mounds of squash planted - 6 rows of butternut, 4 rows of pumpkin, 4 rows of acorn, and 1 row of buttercup acorn. Here is the tour of the farm:

FIL's melons

FIL's corn rows - he likes to plant these in small sections about 3 weeks apart so he isn't harvesting barrels of corn all at once. 

Top part of the garden, we tilled this up and put 2 rows of squash at the very end. 
And no farm post is complete with some pictures of the most awesome farm dog!

    1. You're right, we are super lucky to have the space... It is deceiving though, as we have to drive 2 hours just to get there. But I am still thankful that we have the space to grow winter squash without losing our entire yard!

  2. That is a LOT of squash! Love the farm dog - what a cutie. It's nice to be able to farm with family - looks like you made the most of your trip and I'm sure your FIL appreciated the help.
