This is the beginning of the Generation Garden where I will have the plants from my grandparents' gardens, and my garden. It is the terrace that Zac built for me. He also collected these red rocks from an outcropping near by. This rock drainage is to direct the water from the south, upward sloping ground that will be put into clover and wildflowers hoping to attract birds, bees, and butterflies.  

This is the east terrace that Zac and Laura created for me and it, too, will drain the water off of the upper ground. By diverting water, we hope to prevent the washouts that have been occurring. We will put a hugelculture upslope from the terrace to catch the water flow from the south. 

The final stages of construction of the geodesic dome greenhouse. We have to build the grow beds and put in a water tank on the north side that is intended to collect the winter heat from the south during winter months. The sun rises very low on the horizon, crosses just above the trees at midday and then goes behind the trees in the afternoon. The water feature will hold fish and plants that will be the water source for the growing beds.

Daniel, you don't know the failures we put under the carpet! 

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on July 31, 2015 at 10:18am
Thanks all for the nice complements. I should confess there is a bias for success in what I show - for everything that grows, there is probably something that didn't. Looks like my biggest plum tree died this summer, loaded with plums at that. A cherry is almost dead, and a peach has failed to thrive for 5 years, so I want to pull it out this fall. The promising pawpaw and persimmon fruits fell off. Im not bothered by that, they are very young trees and I didn't really expect fruits this year on those. Plus there are the ones that are doing great and more than we can eat. Its all part of the evolutionary process and I love puttering in the garden. Fresh home grown filly ripened food from your own garden is so good!

Randy, so glad you will have persimmons this year. A true American fruit!

Sweet corn and pseudo BLTs today. Pseudo because I use vegetarian 'bacon'.

100s again. Looking very very dry around here. i cant handle being out in that, watered early. Saving marigold seeds now, and did some cross pollinating on daylilies to see what happens. This is a big year for me to save seeds, for some reason. Fruits and flowers.

All I can do is sit and 'sighhhhh' as I view the pictures and read about everyone's harvest.  Just amazing what you all are producing.  Daniel your blog info should be in a national magazine!

And I have one lonely plum and nectarine on my trees, Daniel. Boo hiss. Oh, but I have zillions of apples, pears, and peaches--and persimmons. Fall red raspberries are blooming. Gonna make wine out of them for the first time. Just received wine yeast (Amazon). Any suggestions?

Fantastic, Daniel!

Beautiful, Daniel!

Daniel, what a great amount of good food you have.  Makes my mouth water!
