Garden Update

While I was away my garden exploded... Literally

If you want to see what my garden looked like just a short month ago check here.

I have to say the hubs was a champ for watering. As I get a little further into this gardening gig I'm starting to learn a few things. I know for next year I want to build another box the same size as the one we already have. I know that I also want to build a box that is 1 foot long and 4 feet wide for my zucchini and also for my cucumbers as they are kind of taking over the garden right now. I also want to build a separate box for my herbs and completely rip out everything in our boxes and plant flowers in there. So you can see I want to expand this little enterprise we have going here. I am enjoying this little hobby I started and I can't wait for it to bear some fruit!! (and vegetables)!!!!!

Beautiful garden, Dirkey!!! I can't wait to have a house so I can plant one:) When I was in High School, we had a HUGE garden and we quickly learned that squash plants take over everything. Also, when they start to bear fruit, you have to pick them constantly 'cause they get big quickly. Enjoy the yumminess!
