I usually tend to the garden but with me away this summer, Mrs. O has taken up the task. I rototill on the weekends but her and the kids handle the rest. We've also just set up a two chamber compost bin.
Have a look.

Very nice. I've got a much smaller one and it takes a lot of work. Your family is doing an exeptional job there.

If i may ask, a little off-topic..
What camera do you use Oblivion?

The detail on your 1st pic [orange] is so deep

We have two cameras but the one I use is a Cannon Powershot A540. The missus of course uses our newest camera which I dont remember what it is except that it's a Cannon also. By the way, that orange is a dwarf that's only fruiting because of a threat I spouted off last fall. I mentioned something about letting it freeze unless it gives me fruit. It must have taken me serious because it wasnt long after that it flowered and I hand pollinated each flower.

Nice garden. Interesting soil. Riverbottom? Drainage is no problem I'm guessing.

Style points on the front doors to the composting bins.

Happy eats!

Drainage is no problem if you go to the hills. The lower portion of my land is wetlands. This land was once the boggy shore line of a lake long ago. In lower areas that arent wetland, the soil is very rich. Up on the hills its more sand and somewhat depleted from heavy farming 20 some years ago.

put mulch and compost on the soil, I have the same problem but caused by water most nutrients have been washed away.
