Then planting time came and I grew a little ambitious. My garden is FULL... very very full. So full you can barely walk through it. Not good. Anyhow, here's a couple pictures to give you a feel for it. Note my daughter will be six in October and I could probably lose her in it.
Our potato pots.... we could have kept laying dirt but we were tired and it was getting expensive so we just stopped and are anxious for fall to come so we can see if they worked!
From a distance.
A little closer.
From left to right - onions, peas, cauliflower (sorry for the picture - blogger is being crazy and won't flip it - anyone know how???)
My first hot pepper!
Our watermelon patch that had to be added later cause I ran out of room in the first garden!
These are my tomatoes.... my dad did not think our plants from seeds would grow so he had my mom buy some at the store. Yes, those are mine in the back that are much taller then his... and now we have WAY too many cause he told me half of mine would die.
I will admit a mistake here and say that I did not pay close enough attention to my cherry tomato and regular tomato plants, we have a very poor ratio. And every cherry tomato plant looks like this.
In the past onions haven't made it past the 'green' onion stage around here, but because my dad has been out of town they have gotten a chance to grow and hopefully grow some more!
My beautiful bean plants!
The insane zucchini plants. These things have not produced but have completely taken over my garden :( And I've even had two people ask me for zucchini - oh my.
And the random sweet corn down the middle. Anyone else go by the rule 'knee-high by the fourth of July'? If so we were in business! :)
