How our garden grows

It's garden planting time.  We LOVE getting our seedlings in the ground, caring for them, and watching what happens.  Last year's garden was a bust.  We had beautiful, big plants...and hardly any veggies.  Frustrating.  So, this year we decided to go with fewer plants and see what happens.

 We went with tomatoes (big and small), lettuce,

 sugar snap peas, and zucchini.

Plus, our raspberry bush from last year is still alive.  Yes.

 We'll have to wait and see if our new planting methods work.

 For now, these little sprouts

 and blossoms hold the promise of good things to come.


  1. I think your garden is glorious and wondrous as can be! And I missed a whole couple of posts it looks like. Thanks for the bounty. Our computer crashed so I'm going to have to hurry and look at the other posts here from work.

  2. I'm so jealous! It keeps snowing here and raining and being way too cold. I'm not sure if our garden is going to survive. Nothing's better than fresh peas from the garden.

  3. Way to go...looks like you will have a nice little garden.
    Only thing I have in so far is strawberries, I need to get on the ball before it's too might already be too late :(

    Not a sauerkraut;
    That's why we like vegetables,
    You know what they're about....."
