We have never had such a nice garden I just had to make a video to let you actually tour it.
I was so glad that Owen helped us put the steaks onto our garden signs.  They just look so adorable out there at the end of the rows.  I am smitten!
Here is our row of broccoli.
This head of broccoli was bigger than a dinner plate.  It is just so incredible how well the compost tea fed our soil.  All the plants and the fruit of the plants grew like crazy out there.
Once you cut the center broccoli stalk off, the little shoots come up over time and you have even more broccoli to enjoy.
We are at the end of the season for our broccoli so we let some of it go to seed.  We plan to save the seeds and then plant the broccoli in our greenhouse next spring.
Our brussel sprouts look amazing.  We found out that it helps to get the sprouts bigger if you trim the bottom leaves up. Then more of the energy goes into fruiting.  I just went out there yesterday and the brussel sprouts were the size of a quarter in diameter.  They are very close to harvesting.
The squash is flowering and there are little squash fruit forming.  The are so cute right now!
The potatoes, onions, and carrots (our root crops) are growing nicely.
Lots of pepper plants are starting to flower and on the end here, as you can see, some of the fruit is forming already.  So exciting!
This is a beautiful head of cauliflower.
It is important to cover that head with the leaves to shield it from the sun.  If you do not shield it, the head turns purple and brown in some places.
Wow, look at how pretty this cabbage plant is!  I never grew cabbage before so this is pretty special to me.
The next is a pretty embarrassing photo of me, but that is what I was like a year ago.  I was tired, in constant discomfort, I felt pretty lousy.  I sat most of the time.  My inactive lifestyle got the better of me.  So thankful that I am able to be out in my garden, full of energy, feeling amazing, and I can live life to the fullest.  No more struggle with my constant discomfort!  Yay!  I have such a blessed life!  I love being able to enjoy the outdoors with my family again!  That is the impact of one year of taking Plexus.  Just had to share my little anniversary of wellness with you!  Hope you enjoyed our garden tour!

Just for a reminder…

  1. Awesome garden! Your blog is such an inspiration! So glad that Plexus has done so much for you, we’ve never tried any of it but it sounds like good stuff. Keep on being the inspiration that you are!! Love in Christ, Julia

  2. Amazing garden, it is indeed a blessing and shows that hard work is worth it. I was so excited the other day just harvesting a cabbage and strawberries from my small plot. You look so well,(praise be), I hope one day to have less pain from my back so I can do more in the garden. God Bless you Diane x

  3. I’ve read about your use of Plexus. My mom and brother have diabetes. I’m curious which Plexus product your daughter used and the cost. I think it would be worth it to try. Thanks.

  10. How do you keep wild animals at bay? I have a ground hog as a neighbor and it ate two big heads of broccoli several weeks ago…I immediately put up a chicken wire fence around the bed. but by then it was too late for the beautiful heads I had.
