One of the things that both excited me and sold me on our house was the big backyard. I had visions and plans for it even though we moved in September, and the yard was slowly dying as we headed into the fall and winter.
It wasn't gorgeous out quite yet, but it's getting warmer and it's getting time to do things in the yard! A couple weekends ago it was nice out, so we started our garden! I knew exactly where I wanted to put it, and when I saw the wood garden kit at Home Depot I knew it was perfect for our first real garden!
It isn't perfect, but it's a nice improvement on last year's garden. The container garden didn't work out as well as I'd hoped last year, so I'm happy to see this in our yard this summer!
Some of our plants are doing better than others. These guys are the romaine lettuce plants. They don't look like much, but trust me when I say they have definitely grown!
Our tomatoes are not fairing as well at the moment because there's not nearly as much sun as they'd like. As long as they can hold on a little longer they will be happy though!
On the other side of the garden, my broccoli are definitely growing, and the jalapeno pepper is growing new leaves! I'm really excited about the fresh vegetables we have this summer, whatever we happen to get!
Are you gardening this summer?
