Super Garden!

When we were at my dad's this last time he took us down the street because he wanted to show us his friend's garden. He said it was amazing and that he had over 2000 tomato plants. I was like, uh....sure dad. So we went on a field trip. Tony's garden was AMAZING and I think 2000 tomato plants is a bit of an understatement. I couldn't believe the operation this guy was running! I wish I had gotten a picture of all of the fruit trees he has. I have never seen so many fruit trees! Here's a small sampling of the garden though.



It works out great for them though because my dad brings all the horse manure from his farm, Tony uses it in the garden and then my dad gets all kinds of fresh veggies!

AND Tony shares his bounty with needy families! What a great guy! I have wood shop envy. Tony has an AMAZING wood working shop....sigh...

That's an amazing garden. I'm lucky to just have my various flowers and plants make it through the summer, and I just have a few small beds of them.

nice, wish i had the space for something like this. Although my garden as is keeps me plenty busy, lol. Think i will have to order more tomatoes this year again from the farmer george down the road for canning. My garden will provide eating ones but not enough to can for the full winter.
