Papa's Garden

People come from far and wide to see Papa's winter garden! I'm not exaggerating either! So many people have come by to get the winter gardening lesson from Papa Payne.  It really is quite remarkable. He built greenhouses made of pvc pipe/or metal and plastic tarp.  It keeps your plants nice and toasty so you can grow whatever you want in the winter. I'm a fan, that's for sure.  There's so many things about summer gardens that stink... ants, grasshoppers, and the heat! And nothing beats a garden fresh salad. Yum!  

   Us girls are so lucky to have Papa Payne close by!
isn't it pretty?
For you to get an idea of the size- check this out! I love it!
Giving Rachel and Maggie a lesson on weeds... I'm not sure it sinked in... but I learned something! ;)
I love how Papa's face is what's in focus in this one. You can tell he really enjoys it! 
Rachel and her Papa Payne...
