THE BOUNTY AND GOODNESS
OF A MISSOURI VEGETABLE GARDEN

Imagine, growing all your food for the year . . .

1/3 of an acre of rich organic Missouri soil;
raised beds, to keep the armadillos from burrowing in;
7-foot fencing, to keep the deer out;
full sun, with shade netting for the lettuce;
regular watering (no problem with all our rain);
enough beds to have enough to eat (and put up for the winter);
squash and beans, tomatoes and herbs, asparagus and kale;
watermelons and cantalope; cabbage and broccoli;
and way too many strawberries.

We can always add more next year!

(Have a taste of fresh picked golden raspberries.
Indescribably delicious!)
