1 Corinthians 3
6. . . but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8. . . and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Cozy Acre Garden and tying tomatoes

http://thepioneerwoman.com/homeandgarden/2011/05/growing

For Ree, the pioneer woman

Last year the farmer retired and we had two gardens, one at home and one at the property¬† where we attend church. I’ll show pictures of both.
At the church garden before and working the soil:


Watering system and using grass clippings for mulch

Tomatoes

Squash and cucumbers, yellow lemon and Armenian He used field fencing to train vines on, it worked really well, no more crawling to find cukes

Tomatoes all staked up

The home garden has been working for 12 years, it was a beauty to behold. i can say that since I did very little work in it.
The beginnings (gazebo in back is my chicken pen)

Tomatoes

Cucumbers on welded wire


Tied tomatoes




Sweet 100’s

Ace Tomatoes

Romas

A good harvest

Our garden stand at home, I was knitting; ( we had a stand at the church property also, but no picture), selling was my job.

I hope these pictures showed what I was trying to say. We have found that this method of tying is the best and easiest.

Happy and productive gardening to each of you who happen to stop by Cozy Acres.   Leslie
