how does your garden grow?

This year we decided to give gardening another try. We’ve had small gardens throughout the years, without a huge amount of success. And once our dog, Buzz (a yellow lab) came into our lives, the garden became a trampled mess. Not to mention the fact that no one really wanted to walk through the poop filled yard to get to the garden to take care of it. But since Buzz is no longer with us (he went bye bye with Daddy, according to Delaney) we thought this would be a good opportunity to garden.

We started with a piece of yard that looked like this:


We don’t really use this strip of yard. It’s on the north side of the house, but gets a lot of sun throughout the day. Jeremy rented a tiller and got the ground ready for planting.

Now it looks like this:


We have tomatoes, green peppers, zucchini, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon and several herbs. I’m anxious to be able to eat from our garden!!
