Last year's garden was a terrible mess. I was pregnant, it was hot, and the project was just way too ambitious for me at the time.
But I'm looking forward to this year. Here's our setup so far:
This time I'm not letting the weeds win. I put down newspapers, then weedblock fabric.
On the side next to the house: sugar snap peas, spinach, grape tomatoes, bell peppers, and banana peppers. On the side facing the yard (and camera): kale, and in a few days, I'll also plant zucchini and bush beans (green beans).
In containers along the side, I also planted a green bell pepper and more banana peppers.
And this guy is a cherry tomato plant, which will share the bucket with a lettuce plant. In the front yard is an identical bin with sunflowers that accidentally grew from seeds left in our birdfeeder. Hee.
Oh, also, I have to find somewhere to stick a strawberry plant.
This year I think will be better because Mike can help me since he's not in pain all day anymore. He already set up a grow light operation on the top of our chest freezer. It looks like we have a pot farm, but I swear it's just cilantro and mesclun.
Nathan enjoys watering things. I do not enjoy him watering things, mostly because they are usually things like me, the baby, his own pants, or the mail.
I think he has reached peak cuteness. He's all "Mommy, helping YOU!" when we're outside. He also told the baby he loved him, completely unprovoked. DYING OF CUTE. I AM DED.
