What's Planted

Planted (mostly - there are a few still waiting):
Flowers - allysum, petunias, dianthus
Lovage (came back)
Chives (came back)
Thyme (came back)
Yellow Pear Tomatoes
Cherry Tomatoes
Roma Tomatoes
Early Girl Tomatoes
Red Peppers
Orange Peppers
Red Chili Peppers
Yellow Squash
Green Beans

I think that's it. We are hoping for a successful gardening venture this year. My favorites of all of the above are the yellow pear tomatoes and herbs. We use the lasagna style gardening with layering of compost, dirt, newspaper, leaves etc. We do not spray with anything. Andrew has done most of the planting in the ground and I have done the potting. We make a pretty good team. :) I can't wait to eat our first produce (besides the herbs which we are already using)!

I've tried and tried to upload photos to go with this but alas, blogger is being frustrating and I'm done trying - I have many better things to do.

How exciting!!!! I just planted our garden this morning before the rain came (which I hope was a good idea). I think I have a little room left, so I'll need to think of a few more things. I sure hope it all works! And, now I'm wondering if going away in July is going to be a bad idea.....

You amaze me! :)

That's awesome. I'm envious, except of the work involved. Maybe after our grass comes in I can have a garden too. I've got the bug this year. You'll have to post pictures ...

Yellow pear tomatoes remind me of summers at the Campbell house.

I'd love to learn more about the lasagna style of gardening. Sounds interesting!
