Check out my mother-in-law's garden

Some of you may remember I featured my mother-in-law, Judy, on My inspiration Mondays a while back. She's awesome in so many ways; her garden is particularly outstanding.

I thought you might like to see how her garden is looking this summer, so I snapped some photos of it while we were holidaying with her over Christmas.

Judy's goal is to become as self-sufficient in fruit and vegetables as possible, so she's been expanding her food-producing gardens. She has also taken out a large Pin Oak tree that was shading her vegetable plots and fruit trees. In its place she has planted a Flatto Peach tree and a pumpkin plant.

Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and broccoli.

Keep inspiring, Judy!
