|Notice the space Sidney left between each plant.|
He has helped me with canning these up by peeling over two 5 gallon buckets of cucumbers for our "Red Cinnamon Pickles", slicing another bucket for "Bread and Butter Pickles", helping me to slice and grate numerous bags of zucchini and yellow squash, and in just a few days the corn will be ready! The tomatoes are coming in pretty steady too!
When Sidney planted this garden he was careful to leave lots of extra space between his plants. He said that he didn't want to fight to get around the vegetables so he left more than the directions called for. We did ask God to bless our garden and wow! Has he ever! Just look at the way the garden looks now!

Squash Plants, tomatoes, and corn looking and tasting good!
As of today, I have canned 13 jars of bread and butter pickles, 36 pints of zucchini relish, and tonight the cinnamon pickles go into jars. Next are the tomatoes and then I will freeze home grown sweet corn! Yes, we're busy, and things don't seem to simple for now, but this winter when we are enjoying the fruits of our labor, we will be so happy and then we will be enjoying the simple life!
