What were your biggest successes this season?

Rose's, peonies,hollyhocks,carrots, beets, sunflowers.

What challenges did or does your project face?

Currently we are in need of healthier soil and more plants and seeds. The bee kingdom has been doing their part with the pollination but the forest creatures have been tough to battle as last year the deer ate a large majority or our flowers and other crop.

How are you working to overcome them?

We have tried to do raised beds and fencing to protect certain aspects of the garden.

What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?

I learned a lot about pollinators. I learned that bees love wildflowers and hummingbirds and butterflies love the larger flowers like hollyhocks and lillies. Lillies are sort of difficult to grow but the hummingbirds LOVE them.
