sorry the pics are too big. i'll fix that later.

over the weekend michael and i (well mostly michael...he did all the grunt work) doubled the size of my garden. i planted about 30 tomato plants (roma/beefsteak) and about 21 different pepper plants.

now i don't know what i am going to do with all the stuff when it comes i'll be so tickled green when it does.

cucumbers 5-21-08

every time i look at them i think "i can't believe i grew them from a seed and they are actually growing". i also think "i can't believe i haven't killed anything yet"

disregard the dying marigolds. my mom got them for me to put around the garden to keep the critters at bay. well after planting all those plants sunday i didn't feel like digging up anything else. i'll work on it this weekend.

You have done sooooo much.
I can't wait to read the post of the first tomato, cucumber, pepper... that you use in a salad or recipe.

Hi friend. I am FINALLY catching up on my blog reading. I hope you forgive me for being away so long!

Miss you love you!

it's a good thing i don't live near you...i'd be in your garden with my salt shaker eating all your tomatoes as soon as they ripened. (i used to do that to my poor father--never got a single one, but he didn't care!)

looks like you had a great weekend!

What an incredible garden! I would love to have a garden, but too many deer, too many chipmunks, too many tall trees and not enough sun. Alas, I'll have to resort to enjoying your garden on-line!

Your garden looks awesome! My little potted garden has some garden envy right now!

Hey Elizabeth!!

I was thinking the same thing about scrappers around here. I've been trying to get a local crop group together, but haven't had any takers on it.

Love your garden! I would like to grow veggies eventually, but just don't have the oomph to do it right now.

The bridge is great! There's a totally separate section (very wide too) just for pedestrians and there isn't a draw on it anymore- just concrete.
