Haven Family House Garden Project

The Haven garden project is coming along nicely. The beds could use some more plants but you have to work with what you get in money and plant donations.

On May 15 the Eagle Scouts alumni volunteered to build a much needed shade structure over the sitting area.

The pumpkins are doing much better than I thought they would with the cooler weather that we are having.

Photos below: Next to the pumpkins the bush beans are thriving. Monday we have some volunteers coming to do a little weeding as well as harvesting the beans. They will also be planting some more squash and tomatoes.

Photo below: The bell peppers are struggling in this cool weather.

Photo below: Out of the nine bell pepper plants only one has fruit on it so far.

Now I need to start thinking about the Fall garden!


  1. It's looking so good! I love pumpkin hill!!

  2. What an astounding transformation!

    I remember the original site photos and thinking, "Does Liisa know what she's gotten herself into?"

    You have guided this garden site and its voluteers to something of which to be really proud. Congratulations!

  3. Everything is looking great (except the peppers). My peppers are twiddling their thumbs, waiting for the warm weather too... Can't wait to see the harvests!

  4. Thanks everyone.

    Phil - Wish I could take credit for the playhouse and shade structure but I can't. They have been in the plans for some time. My main focus is to keep the garden projects moving with ideas and guidance.

  5. wow, everything looks GREAT!=)

  6. WOW!! This is my first visit to your garden (blog). Your garden is beautiful and what a beautiful idea to share with others!
