Monster Post for Garden Photos

It has been awhile since I last posted... obviously.

I've been pondering what to write about since it has been so long. Then I toured the backyard this morning after a heavy rain and everything looked so fresh and new. Then I realized that so much is new to our backyard this year.

New garden bed (the one on the right)

New garden fencing (to keep the neighborhood cats and their poop out of my vegetables)

New growth

snap peas, shelling peas, kale, chard, cilantro, lettuce, red peppers, orange peppers
and a tomato plant from my aunt, Nonabelle

beans and 6 varieties of tomatoes

New garden features like the now established garden path

New lights

New garden swing (note it is on the patio that has been buried under 2 feet of brush since we moved here--all new clean patio)

New rain barrels to replace the "crazy bush"

New flowers

zinnias grown from seed and ranunculus buds grown from bulbs

And that doesn't include the front yard, the side yard or the inside of the house. No wonder I've been too busy to blog lately.
