Grandma's garden

Here's a sneak peak at my 87 year old grandmother's organic garden. She loves her plants and flowers, and spends practically the whole day, everyday gardening... except when it rains, and during late autumn, winter and early spring. Mom helps grandma create compost, from the vegetable and fruit peels in the kitchen, used as a natural fertilizer.

Young pumpkins, salad, tomatoes, cucumber, overlooking neighbors' gardens:

The dahlia was a star in the past summers, as several of our neighbors and  passerby asked if they can cut the flowers from our front yard. We gave away red, orange and mauve colored ones ;)
