A Year In A Garden


A YEAR ON IVARENE FARMS






 
A look back at last years bountiful supply of vegetables that never stopped giving made me anxious for another productive year.  This year doesn't look quite the same.  Not enough rain, too much sun and dry conditions.  I haven't given up hope, I have these pictures to inspire me.
