Garden for 2012


I’m a little behind getting this posted. We planted our garden the first week of April! I guess this is more exciting to see anyway because there are actually plants to see!

Funny story that wasn’t really that funny at the time: We worked so hard one afternoon and got all of the plants in the ground. We bought actual plants for the tomatoes, squash, eggplant, and cucumber. Wouldn’t you know it, that night it stormed. Not only did it storm, it HAILED! I’m talking huge, golf ball sized hail. I just knew it ruined the entire garden. Luckily, I was wrong and everything was OK!

Ok so here’s a picture of our backyard. We moved the garden from the previous year.


Our new garden is twice as big, if not three times as big, as our old garden. There are 7 glorious rows! Also, check out the awesome swing HERE.


We’ve got 2 rows of corn. Not sure how this is going to go but we are trying it out :)


Squash that’s already blooming.


Of course I’ve got tomatoes! I will eat about 3 a day when they start producing.


From left to right here’s what we have planted. 1st row: Radishes and carrots. Carrots may not make it :( 2nd row: 3 squash, 3 eggplant. 3rd row: 3 jalapeno, 3 tomato. 4th row: 5 tomato, 1 cucumber. 5th row: Watermelon. 6th and 7th row: Corn.

I’m so excited for some FRESH veggies!!


Thanks for reading :)
