Everything is FINALLY in!

We have 8 beds and one large corner plot.


I finished putting my starts in last night

My garden:
red potatoes
yukon gold potatoes
blue potatoes
corn
pumpkin
zucchini
summer squash
cantaloupe
cucumber
acorn squash
collard greens
spinach
red leaf lettuce
swiss chard
cabbage
carrots
snap peas
peas
beets
radishes
green beans
yellow beans
oregon giant beans
cherry tomatoes
better boy tomatoes
beef steak tomatoes
basil
cilantro
green onion
red onion
walla walla onion
strawberries
lavender
sage
mint
dill
oregano
rosemary

sadly this morning when I went outside to water I saw 2 casualties. Jericho trampled through my herb garden destroying a lavender and a dill. stupid dog.

I might have planted our "vine" plants too close but there is some extra room in our biggest corner plot so Phil and I get to each pick out some starts from the farmers market tomorrow. I'm hoping to find some weird stuff, Phil is hoping to find the worlds hottest pepper.

We probably spent... $30 on seeds to make our own starts which has saved a ton of dinero and probably will become vegetarians late summer early fall. This creates new goals. Maybe I'll lose weight and get to buy those Paige Jeans with our savings from groceries. Yeah right!


Our First Strawberries! Cant wait to have virgin strawberry mojhitos with Jenny and baby Terry fetus!

"Where's Emma I can't find her!"
"She escaped out the sliding glass door again and she's in the strawberries!"
"Oh Emma, you're so bad!"
