Garden Season 2011 is Here!

Hubby was finally able to take some time off. I've been sick so I just watched him all day as he worked on the garden plots. Our Landlords/Friends already has some raised boxes, and we had planted some onions, garlic, and a cabbage (school project for one of the kids). So here is what we've started.Here is the cabbage, etc. This kids are so fascinated by the whole process.Here are the tomatoes. We bought one cherry tomato plant, and three canning tomato plants. We also planted come marigolds to help with bugs.This will have zucchini, yellow squash, and dill (it helps keep bugs away).This one will have two pickling cucumber plants, and a butternut squash plant.We also planted a bunch of herbs: Oregano, Cilantro, Sweet Basil, Thai Basil, Chives, Parsley, Catnip, Spearmint, Cumin, and Lavender.
We still want to plant some peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, and pumpkins (pie and carving) near the raised beds. We also have a huge area that still needs some work, but we are planning lots and lots of corn, peas, and I would love sunflowers, probably some other things, but we'll see.
I love having a garden, mostly because I like to see how nature works.
